Lilies and Life

 

As we bob thru life, ripples of our surrounding effect our every being…

        P6200116

 

We try to remain rooted to that which holds us steadfast and secure.

        P6200093

Sometimes we just float free watching life pass by us.. 

     P6200099 

Suddenly we glimpse something that draws us back.

        P6200117

We examine closely and soon feel that which caused us to pause..

        P6200122

We become the light of our creator

        P6200128

We Smile…

        P6200143

As the sparkles reflect off us onto others

        P6200131

       Who may now pause to become a part of a life thought to only drift.. 

        P6200140

     And know that we are not alone on this big lily pad

but surrounded by the light of all that is love..

   P6200146

Sparkles

May the light of love surround you…

May it keep you afloat

May your soul be anchored

to that which Sparkles…

P6200185

To Everyone

Good Morning…  Good Afternoon…  Good Night

Whatever it is to you..

Dear Carrie: You must have incredible patience and be very blessed to have such amazing shots, like the two insects posing to compliment words. What lovely word meditations and the photographs are, as always, a joy to view. Thank you for this meditation. I leave to reflect renewed to reflect God's joy. Big Smiles

Carrie, these water lilies are beautiful.. the ones I saw are a little different.. they were pink and white, my mom told me that what we were seeing were really lotus bloosoms.. either way.. what ever they are.. to see them on a lake is awe inspiring.. love your thoughts..
hope your day has been ever so blessed.
soft hugs Hope

Carrie, just out cyberstrolling and popping in to say 'Hello'. Hoping UR well as can be. Finally got rain in YVR (yesterday) and air quality advisories dropped. Today is quite humid but not raining. At least smog decreased. Don't know how it's going in your valley? Not too many forest fires too near? YVR really was smoke and smog bound until rain. Hope the rains did help your good earth garden.
