She paused ~ Deb

“She paused just in time to be reminded of her possible future.” ~Deb

It had been a long, hard day.
Packing, painting, scraping, cleaning, preparing our home to move into.
I was weary, longing for my nest to be organized, cute and free of boxes and empty paint cans!

I stood beside my driveway to admire this blooming message of hope.
The yard is dry and sandy, with no more grass after an unusual drought in Florida. The weeds are brown and crunchy.

Yet a thing of beauty was growing out from the cracks.
Reaching upwards to remind me of the bright future just ahead, a new beginning…
colorful, vibrant, fresh and quite possibly better than ever before!!

We are surrounded with secret messages everywhere we go.
Look up. Look down. Look around.
I am willing to bet you see one right away, this day!
And won’t you come back to tell me about it here?
