365 Days of Colour - Flower of the Day 216 - 222

HAPPY NEW YEAR!


I have a beautiful set of flowers for you to enjoy this week a few like the sweet pea below and the daisy were taken in my garden earlier in the year, and others like the unusual bloom - Vitex on day 222 was taken at Kew Gardens last year with my son.  The reflections, scriptures and quotes this year speak to my current drive to make changes...  We are still works in progress,  we have a choice and there are still so many gifts within us we have yet to discover!


Day 216 


Reflection
Forgive yourself and make a choice, you deserve it

Quote
When we create something, we always create it first in a thought form. ...Shakti Gawain

Scripture
I am coming soon..Revelation 3:11



Day 217

 

Reflection
You are not the sum total of your life right now, you are still a work in progress

Quote
We come into this world with our authenticity intact. Slowly we realize that our parents can’t see us (because they can’t see themselves), don’t know us (because they don’t know themselves), and if we want their love, we must dress in a costume that pleases them. After years of wearing it, we think the costume is who we are, even when it gets tight and tattered. We get so attached to the costume that we refuse, no matter what the cost, to give it up; it is all we remember of ourselves. Our efforts to change usually consist of adding buttons or trim or rhinestones to the costume; the thought of removing it- letting go of our parents as they live in our bodies- is disorienting, even frightening. ...Geneen Roth

Scripture
Be strong and courageous...for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you..Deuteronomy 31:6


Day 218
 

Reflection
All is well, breath and let tomorrow worry about itself.

Quote
For those who have the interest to look closely, life becomes art....Diane Mariechild

Scripture
I am the good shepherd; I know My sheep and my sheep know Me..John 10:14


Day 219
 

Reflection
You have so many gifts waiting to be birthed

Quote
When you see each leaf as a separate thing, you can see the tree, you can see the spirit of the tree, you can talk to it, and maybe you can begin to learn something...William J. Rausch

Scripture
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God..1 John 4:7

Day 220
 

Reflection
You are precious

Quote
Over and over, we have to go back to the beginning. We should not be ashamed of this. It is good. It’s like drinking water....Natalie Goldberg

Scripture
God giveth to a man that is good in His sight wisdom, and knowledge and joy..Ecclesiastes 2:26


Day 221
 

Reflection
Loving kindness is what your heart needs right now

Quote
Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about… Say yes quickly, if you know, if you’ve known it from before the beginning of the universe...Rumi

Scripture
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble..Psalm 9:9



Day 222
 

Reflection
Each step you take leads you closer to your dreams

Quote
The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, Joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware....Henry Miller

Scripture
The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against Him..Daniel 9:9
