A boy and his dad were driving in the woods and they get into a car accident. The dad dies and the boy goes to the hospital for surgery. The surgeon arrives and says, "I can not operate on him, he's my son."
How is the possible?
As I look back on the past few months of my life, it's like I have been on the outside looking in. What's the deal? I've wanted to be selfish with my time and I have abandoned my daily routines and habits and replaced them with what appears to be a lazy person. Okay, on the outside it appears as if I've gotten lazy but on the inside it's not anywhere near true. If only everyone knew my true intentions - hummm.....
Slowly, ever so slowly there has been a change; like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon. I am starting to take ownership and pride in my home again. I have the desire to start putting together routines and follow them. I am a week into going off caffeine and starting to take care of myself in general.
During this time, has God been working on me; to change me like a caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly? What has been going on in my heart and soul? Why am I not seeing it right now? Am I growing up? I know God is working on me- we're all a continuous work in progress.
I feel like a Morning Glory, ready to bloom and turn my face to the light in the morning but as soon as it turns cloudy or dark I have a tendency to want to close back up. Not that I always allow myself to do that but it's what my inner self wants to do.
I want to be an Electric Indigo, this is a flower that blooms both during the day and night. Whether there are storms or sunshiny days in my life; with God's help I will strive to be the Electric Indigo, to bloom where He plants me, day and night, and I will rejoice in it.
