Bloom Where You Are Planted

Often we are forced to bloom with our backs against a wall. We've done everything in our power to make a change in our surroundings but it just isn't happening. It's hard to realize at times like these that we are the change we're waiting for. Like the flowers, it's not about a new location. It's about a new transformation in us. We can wilt, letting off steam or wither, burning up energy needed for blooming. Or we can sweetly surrender and relax in the sunshine, letting our petals unfold naturally and on time.

Bloom Where You Are Planted has been popping up for me this week. First, it was the sermon on Joel Osteen's program Sunday night. Then yesterday, I stopped by a friend's on the way home. A plaque with pink roses was mounted on her wall in the foyer. "Bloom Where You Are Planted" was inscribed on it. I laughed when I saw it and she smiled. "That's what my mother always told me." We agreed it was good advice.

So if change is slow in coming. Ask your Angels to help you find peace where you are, knowing that you are exactly at the right place at the right time. Your presence is where you are by divine order. Call on the Angels of Harmony and Balance to help, too. Meditation and prayer also work like Miracle Grow.

Wishing you a joyful day with the Angels,
