Hearts

This post is inspired by Ms. Renee of Heart tokens. She loves hearts and sees them in various places and circumstances.

Because of her blog, I have begun taking notice of hearts as well.

This past Monday, Memorial Day, on my morning walk I saw this beauty. A rock in the shape of a heart. Normally I do not pick things off the street, but this was in the middle of the walkway. This path is fairly well-traveled, but I was the only traveler present this morning.

So I bent over and picked this one up happy to have found it.

Thank you Ms. Renee for my newly-opened eyes, I choose to see my new heart as a hello from God.

The significance that I found it on a day we remember those lost fighting for others.

Thank you, Lord, for the many tokens of appreciation in our lives.

Good Morning

Today I was reluctant to get out of bed. Since my father passed away some two weeks or so ago I have not been sleeping very well. Each night I wake up and remain so for several hours. My mind races with the regret of what could have been.

Alas, God is the master planner.

I would not be the me that I am today without the sum total of all the life experiences, so this was the path He chose for me.

I am content, but the subconscious still feels regret and as such, insomnia has been a frequent visitor.

On a lighter note, these are the flowers blooming outside my window today and I always find such joy in the things of nature.

Do enjoy the rest of this day the Lord has made for us and be blessed!
