Wild flowers

Today was one of those days that just seemed to happen.
Nothing exciting just an ordinary run of the mill day. There seems to be endless days where all I seem to accomplish is laundry, dishes, meals and carpooling kids or chickens around..You ever find your self thinking really what is the point in all of this?

I often ponder where my life is leading me, am I just rambling through life, am I making any difference at all?

I went for one of my family walks today and was reminded of what life was about.
I saw it for a brief moment through the camera.. my life.

It was kind of like an old fashioned slide show, my beautiful family walking down our river trail, the beautiful flowers, wild yet fully and gloriously made.

God created those wild flowers so beautifully and perfectly. No one may see them but just look at how perfect and vibrant they are. They may never be seen or touched by any human at all, but God has a purpose for creating these beautiful flowers, perhaps they are for him?
(sorry can't figure out how to rotate picture, use your imagination!)

Perhaps they make him as happy as they make me?
 Perhaps...I am just guessing, but It came to me today that if Those flowers are so very beautiful and special to God how much more special and cherished are we?

You are a beautiful and cherished creation. Your life matters, you matter. There is an amazing purpose for your life.
 I am so glad to be able to share this blog post with you today because it was such an amazing ah ha moment that got captured  through my camera's eye.

My sweet trusting, children, my loving husband walking down the path. For a moment it was so perfect. Life often crowds in on me and I find my self just living.

 I so want to be the parent I didn't have, I want to be a kind loving wife, a good faithful friend, I want to be so much more that what I am.

Today I think I learned something though, I am on that path right along with my family walking beside them, holding fast to Gods hand.
 On a journey down a winding path, the end is not in sight but we are together, and for today that is all that matters. I am trusting God one step at a time, he knows my desires, he knows my faults yet he still loves me, and he loves you too!

So yes today was so very ordinary, the laundry got started, the dished and meals done but something very extraordinary happened,..simple...sweet..and  beautiful.
My dear grandma always said stop and smell the roses, I think she had something there.

Know that I am praying for you tonight, hoping that you along with me don't just exist, but LIVE, one step at a time holding on to a hand that will lead you along the path of life, one that leads to something so much more than what we see here and now.

Fawn lilies on the river path
Love you!

Mathew 6:28
"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
