Earlier this week severe thunderstorms moved through central Florida bringing sudden destruction to several homes in DeLand. Thankfully, there were no fatalities.
Thunderclaps and lightning bolts shook the house in our area, rattling my nerves as I prayed Psalm 91, and called on the angels for help.
The next day Grace, our little bonsai on the back porch caught my attention. The winds had tattered the spider web that had clung to her long branch. Otherwise, the bonsai garden had passed safely through the storm.
Yesterday in the late afternoon, to my delight, the dainty spiral web was intact again, rehung from the juniper's green bough! And, the tiny spider was in plain view, resting in her renewed creativity. Her powerful lesson was on keeping the faith. To never give up, no matter what. To get back up, and do your best. Be like that persistent little web weaver, and keep on keeping on.
This morning, yet another wonderful surprise was waiting under Grace, the bonsai. Two new mushroom umbrellas had blossomed! Don't you think one looks as though a feather is growing on its cap? Feathers are a welcomed sign of angelic help. A comforting message that we are never alone. God's grace is sufficient for us all.
I'm so thankful for these inspiring messages from nature that speak a truth in a universal language of Love. I welcome any nature experiences you may wish to share. We all grow as we weave our stories together in an ever-expanding spiral web of enlightenment that heals the heart.
Love and peace,
