I’ve had a lot of things on my mind lately. Some things that are weighing me down a bit. I am sure I am in a bit of a growth time. A time that is stretching and trying, but in the end will help me bloom into something more beautiful.

It’s taken me a long time to say that I am comfortable with who I am. I certainly didn’t feel that way as a child or teenager or even young adult.  But I think the combination of being married to a loving supportive husband and growing up I’m learning to be okay that this is me.

Still there are days when my heart is over come with discouragement or feelings of insignificance. I think that is normal. That we all have those days where we see more of what we are lacking than where we are wonderful.

My linked buddy Tracey wrote ” While there is a global sense of repetitiveness to your life, the fact is each day and moment is swept into shape to reflect the available light given to you. How they spill out onto the shoreline is dependent on the formation of your ocean floor and the pull of forces around you. Friend, every single day of your life you display an endless array of colors and light in how you live in those moments… …in a manner that no one else can replicate.”  found here.

Isn’t that wonderful and reassuring?!

As I was out for a just a brief few moments to capture these trees, I was thinking about all of this. And how much we do matter. Even when we don’t feel like it. We always matter to our loving Heavenly Father. Every single moment of every day. And that should  give us root. Strong healthy roots that will hold us, ground us and give us strengthen to work through the moments and days when other feelings try and crowd in.
