Today — as I reflect on the foot steps leading to the release of my second book Wild Wellies Wanted and the signing of a lease on a new home for t*da studio—
I’m aware that I’m also more and more at ease with the belief that I possess absolutely —
And for this, I am exceptionally —
It’s an answered prayer, really.
“Work through me, Lord,” I pray daily, tagging my request with:
“Your will —
I’m not saying I never get grabby, trigger happy —
Or just plain forget who is in charge here.
As I ask and listen with more intention, I seem to find endless examples of magnificently-timed sacred departures and arrivals everywhere I turn.
The majestic head of the towering sunflower I nurtured from a single seed begins its descent and I feel a tinge of sadness.
I notice a fresh new face —
Peering coyly over its shoulder.
It smiles back at me and breaks me open —
As only that which I do not control or possess can do.
Nature, the great teacher.
The patient reminder.
Are you aware of how you cultivate and embrace divine timing in your life? How does viewing life’s gifts as “loans” prosper your life today?

I read this to my childhood friends while in Ogden, UT this fall. We had just returned from a nature walk, admiring expanses of red rocks and miniature wild flowers nearly invisible, they are so small. I loved this then; I love it now.
