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

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 91 :: the flowers are coming

4 Apr

Spring. 

It’s my favorite time of year. Flower blooming season. And… the tulips are here! (At least at the grocery store).

I think this might be Mother Nature’s kindest and prettiest act of intentional kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

17 Apr

Day 107: Ah, Spring.

The sun was out today and it makes me “hope” that means spring is really, really, really, truly here!

So in honor of Spring, I found these free spring printables from Clean and Scentsible.

Enjoy!
And now… on to yoga.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 64 :: bloomin’ and breathing

5 Mar

Day 64. Bloom!

We may have given up our garden with our move North… but I still love capturing the beauty of Spring flowers. So tonight, I share these from Jaynane’s garden.


I realize I am also witnessing two other little flowers bloom and grow as well, in the form of our little nieces. These girls are blooming right before my eyes.

Yoga is teaching me to breathe. And breathing is teaching me to take in each and every moment, even the ones that seem to be going way …too …fast.

Bloom. Bloom. Bloom.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 53 :: beautiful empty

23 Feb

Day 53. Vast.

There are days when I come to this blog feeling empty. And, really, it’s a beautiful thing. Beautifully empty. No pressure of words that need to come spilling out. No thoughts that have been collecting and building up steam ready to burst forth.

It is beautiful in its own way, really. Just being. Beholding. Be Hold. Just be.

So instead of too many words, tonight, I will share something that is about to burst. A flower. In front of my office window.

Be. Hold.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S. Yoga done!
