Out of the Cracks and into the Sunlight: An Angel Message

Some of you may be wondering how the buttercup plant fared during Dorian. This amazing wild buttercup has been such a good teacher, bringing many lessons:  Bloom where you are planted;  All things are possible with God;  Take it one day at a time, in gratitude;  Do your best and let God do the rest.

As you may recall, her seed had been planted by the wind over a year ago.  What a surprise to find a spindly little green vine growing out of a narrow crack in the stucco wall by our backdoor.  I waited, curious to learn what it was.  Then she bloomed one day.

Buttercup! A childhood favorite!  I was happy to greet my flower friend in my coming in and going out each day.  As you can see, over the last year and a half, she has grown very tall, branching out in new directions.  I marvel at her height, as she towers above the doorway, while planted in such a restricted place. 

With the impending storm, I worried that the high winds in the forecast may ruffle her branches and cause her to break.  I thought about putting a physical shield around her, but then I remembered a better solution.  Why not ask the angels to watch over and protect all the flowers, trees, little animals and birds in the wake of the storm. 

The next morning, what joy to see the hardy buttercup had not only survived, but cheerfully greeted me with a big golden smile.

I looked up the symbolism of the buttercup again.  It is a messenger to develop better self-worth.  With proper self-worth, we can succeed in every environment.  (Even in a small crack in the wall!)  Buttercup affirms that the power of our words will be increasing, especially when applied to healing.  This buttery flower alerts us to opportunities for new life directions and for sharing our light with others. 

Thank you, Angels for all that you do to love, guard, guide and comfort.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,

Rae Karen
