THE VOICE.....ARE YOU LISTENING?
Pull of a chair and listen with your heart..No not with your ears... We have two ears and most of the time we can not even hear when we are listening.. If we would just listen more with our heart we would hear so much more.. I am speaking to my self out loud and maybe sharing with you too.
I love found and free things..Like this old chair..I brought it home and it has been waiting for me to do something with her. I love chairs, I know I have too many of them but when I see a small and vintage I have to bring it home..You know the ones you really can not sit in..Just the ones that look pretty. You do know what I am talking about . Right? I know I am not the only one that does it..I HOPE....
This one I just could not find a place for it and it was not too sturdy but it had potential... So I started painting it..First white wash and then some blue and then some red and then some more white.. I hated it and wished I had just keep it simple and left it white..LOL.. Too late..So I keep looking at it ..I knew it was going to hold a garden because I had found some old chicken wire from a old old chicken house..Really!!! It just needed something more,because I was not happy with the colors and then I added the words.. Now it was perfect for me....Now the flowers are starting to bloom..I did the happy dance when I say them blooming...You know we all have our own happy dance..
I hope some where in your day, even if it is a simple thing like an old chair that has become my small garden that you can find a time to do your own happy dance..
There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under the heaven. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up.
Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7.
Have a good and blessed Memorial weekend.
May you always dream in color.
