On this cool autumn Sunday afternoon I walked in the garden and enjoyed the tranquil beauty of roses. This particular rose caught my attention with its soft pink shade. Such peacefulness can be found in a garden. Just walking around and enjoying beautiful colors, the singing of birds high in the oak branches, and the coolness of autumn breezes can surely lift your mood.
So, as we approach the holiday season, take the time to just walk in a garden and not give in to the stresses that often come with the unrealistic expectations of this upcoming holiday season.
God has truly blessed us with an astonishingly beautiful world; keep that in perspective in these coming weeks.
Simplicity is best; do not overburden yourself with unrealistic expectations (from yourself or from others).
We only have one chance at this beautiful life, so make the best of each moment.
Take a walk in a garden.
Enjoy the roses, the birdsong, the cool breezes that sweep across the earth.
Keep this life in perspective. There is indeed light at the end of each dark tunnel.
God is in control. God loves each and every one of us.
You are not alone.
If in this holiday season you start to feel too stressed and alone, please reach out to someone.
2023 is just around the corner; it is a new year to dream again and to set goals and to grow closer to God.
For now, take a walk in a garden and contemplate God’s love. Stand in the silence and just know that there is a tomorrow and you are loved.
