Sometimes God does for us what we can’t do for ourselves.
With all the driven push in my life to *get caught up*, traveling, and keeping my head clear and level for work, I’ve needed a break.
To get swallowed up in some heavy duty serenity.
Just yesterday, amidst a deliberate, focused, deep cleansing breath session after a particularity tough client, I’d said, “I need a flower day soon.” (blonde translation: “I need a day tinkering in my potted garden.”)
Well, God must have heard me. lol
Last night my hotwater heater went out. I ended my tilt-a-whirl day with a shower that was so tepidly warm it had a chill to it. *sighs*
Granted, I wanted a flower day, but truly… not this way. Not when I’m so busy and trying SO hard to get everything done.
What does a hotwater heater going out have to do with a flower day, you might ask?
The hotwater heater is enclosed in a closet on my back patio. Did I mention my back patio is FULL of potted plants? I will have to do some MAJOR moving things around in order for the maintemance man to be able to work on the hotwater heater.
*laughs at the irony of it all*
Oh well… when life deals you lemons … make lemonade.
It’ll be good for me to catch up on my gardening as well.
I love getting lost in my flowers and plants.
It fills my soul with a deep gratitude for life … it swallows me up with serenity.
