Pink Morning Glory: Break Old Habits and Be Spontaneous

This morning while waiting for skydivers at The Perfect Spot, my attention was drawn to a beautiful pink flower growing in the gravel parking lot. Against all odds, it was in full bloom enjoying the morning sun.  I knew it was a morning glory and remembered fondly my grandparent's farm where they had grown in the gullies bordering the dirt lane leading to the house. 

Today Elliot and I celebrate our 16th anniversary.  I was thankful to nature for this beauty.  I looked up on the fence by the car and saw a leafy vine filled with lots of pink morning glories opened wide.  I was sorry I didn't have my camera.

Later on I learned more about the symbolism of this flower shaped like a funnel.  A funnel can be used to draw things in or help express things outward.  A morning glory is a sign to be more spontaneous in our expressions. It's time to break old habits and get out of a rut.  Just like the woodpecker message yesterday on following the beat of a new rhythm, the morning glory signifies the old way of doing things will no longer work. It's time for fresh new energies.  The vines of the flower are heart shaped and the color, pink, indicates expressions of love need be more spontaneous.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and blessings,
