JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 229 create :: flow

17 Aug

{trust}  

I am enamored with flowers. How they grow, bloom, unfold. It’s no wonder that FLOW is the root of the word flower. I am also enamored with the trust required to bloom, whether you are a flower or a human. We must trust where we are planted, what we are fed, how we are nourished and weather patterns that are out of our control.

And yet, still, we bloom. It’s quite amazing really. 

So tonight’s thoughts on trust are to create flow, whether you are a flower or a human, and what where it takes you. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 203 :: trust you

22 Jul

{trust}  

Trust thoughts for a night in Chicago…. it’s beautiful here. It’s not hot, it’s perfect. Last year at this time it was so muggy you couldn’t breathe. This year it is perfectly perfect. 

It is a reminder to me to pay little attention to the season and be the flower that blooms regardless of the season. 

And it’s always a good time to bloom. Bloom, baby bloom. 
Trust me!

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 197 :: trusting in a verb

16 Jul


{trust}  

I am finding that trust is verb…. trusting is a constant state of being. It is taking one step forward. 

Sometimes in order to bloom that is what we must do. Trusting….one step at a time.

Trust me!

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 169 :: trust your dreams

18 Jun

{trust}  

I receive notes from time to time from people who see this blog. Many times I hear that what I posted is exactly what they needed to hear, or the nudge they needed, or the confirmation they were waiting for. Every time this happens I am honored and it confirms for me why I share these promises with the world. 

Believe me, there are many days where I hear nothing from anyone too! Those days pile up and at times I wonder how long I will keep this going. But then someone emails me, or sends a message through Facebook or direct messages me and say, “Thank you.”

It’s those days when I am reminded that we are all connected. We are all moving through this world at warp speed together. So, on this day, I trust that someone needs to hear this message: 

Bloom and never look back. Trust your big dreams.
If you don’t have your dreams, what do you have?

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 168 :: trust the sun

17 Jun

{trust}  

The weather forecast calls for rain this week but I am concentrating on the sun. We have a wedding to attend this weekend and we just put little porch lights out on the deck so I have decided to will summer’s presence. Rain or shine.

Maybe trust is more will than patience? Regardless I think it’s best to be the sun in the summer. OR at least trust that it will show up! 

I think that statement applies to many aspects of life. Maybe that’s why we all talk about the weather so much…

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 138 :: trust in the seasons

19 May

{trust}  

Nine years ago I started this blog. Five years ago I discovered my love of flowers. Today, I saw the first blossom on our rhododendron plant. It’s like falling in love all over again.

The rhodies are about to bloom and they make my heart soar. 

I discovered my love of flowers when they were my only hope. I was in my head waiting for surgery and they were in the yard waiting to bloom. Both of us were looking up to the sky every day praying for life. As I waited, they slowly unfolded, each petal gently reminding me of the faith it takes to live and the beauty that comes with it.

It’s five years later and today I discovered that the rhododendron plant in front of our new home on a new coast in a new year and a new life is blooming the color purple. It was Mama Sling’s favorite color. It’s also a good reminder that spring is the best time to bloom and summer is the best time to fly. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 84 :: watching flowers bloom

27 Mar
{joyufl}

Spring is starting to peek through the rain, and along with it are also the flowers. I love seeing the flowers begin to bloom. They bring with them so much joy!

Which brings me to tonight’s thoughts on joy…

Joy, truly is, watching the flowers bloom.
Bloom, flowers, bloom! The world needs your joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 55 :: blooming

25 Feb
{defrost}

The snow has melted. And my little flowers outside my office window seemed to have survived the storm. They are brighter green today than they have been all week. It has me thinking of spring, and blossoms and the power of blooming. 

But I know that the petals are really just the expression of all the work that happens before the flower blooms. The struggle in the soil, the surviving of the winter storms, the seeds that were planted so long ago. Blooming always starts on the inside, deep beneath the surface.

I have a feeling that is where JOY comes from too.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

On my walk to the mailbox today I had a total epiphany … spring is coming! It brings me so much joy to think that the flowers are coming soon. Soon-ish, anyway. Until then…. I’m thinking and praying….bloom, baby, bloom!

Oh, joy!

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 138 kindness is…

21 May

Blooming. 

And this:

And also this: watching beauty bloom right in front of your eyes.

The older I am the more appreciation I have for the flowers and the blooming that occurs right before my very eyes. It’s like magic. Or Mother Nature’s kindness pouring out as I walk on by. The tricky part is noticing.

Blooming kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
