Shining Moments

Blooming daffodils covered with snow

encouraged my spirits this morning.

The moment I saw them my heart ached.

My beautiful daffodils bent low with snow.

Not what you would expect in March but there it was.

I stooped to brush off the snow

and gently smoothed their petals.

Immediately they stood a little taller

and I knew that with the rising temperatures

they would soon bloom beautifully again.

There are times when life can suddenly throw heavy burdens our way.

Unexpected challenges

can cause our spirits to droop

our attitudes to dip

and our hearts to quiver.

But,

like those daffodils,

we were not meant to be under burdens.

No, we were not meant to carry it ourselves.

There is One

Who sees all

and knows all.

One Who stoops to brush off the load

or carry it

if need be.

Let’s remember Who He is

and who we are.

Let’s see Him tenderly touching us with love

knowing the reason we are bent

and let the wonder of His forever Love

lift our spirits once again

allowing us to fulfill  the purpose for which we have been created.

Lift your spirits, my friends.

You are not alone.

There is One Who walks beside you

and He cares for you.
