Transitions

Transitions.   We all know them.  The phases of Life when we leave behind an aspect of our Lives to begin a new one.  Both frightening and exciting, these phases, depending on our perspective, can lead to New Horizons of New Worlds.  We can go to those New Horizons kicking and screaming, or we can elect to go with a Trust and a Calm, knowing that everything will somehow eventually stabilize, balance out, and bring to us another Branch of our Dreams.

I know of one such person who has entered the Transition Phase of Life.  Kathy , my dear friend, as you settle into your new home, know that what lies ahead of you, is nothing short of Miraculous.  May this photograph somehow speak to your Soul to bring to you, Peace, and a refreshing of your weariness.

For all of you going through Transitions at this time of your Life, may this image below bring to you sustenance as well.  Please do enjoy!!  This was taken early this morning, with my Canon 50D combined with my EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens.

    1. Dan, your continued support during this time of my life as I finish up with my gardens, I truly am SO grateful for. Thank you, my friend. There have been days your words have carried me on through! Bless you! I too LOVE the mystery in this image. I caught it just right this morning. Love, Amy ❤

    1. Bless you, Andy, for the confirmation. I felt PEACE this morning when I took this photo. As I walked across the wet grass, my spirit was so quiet. My Gift I pass on to all here at Petals. Love, Amy ❤

  1. simply lovely. I like this, “or we can elect to go with a Trust and a Calm, knowing that everything will somehow eventually stabilize, balance out, and bring to us another Branch of our Dreams” That to me is the definition of faith. Huge hug Amy ❤

    1. I Love this one too, Ame. As I walked quietly across the wet grass early this morning, it was so quiet, both within me and without me. Peace was prevalent, which I know is deeply conveyed in this image. I am touched you “felt” the “message”. Bless you, my friend! Love, Amy ❤

  2. Thank’s for you reflexion. I can see or understand, when the fog makes your least safe route , you can always rely on you message of the cross (renunciation , the choice of life , hope that we can convey the message of the cross … )

    1. Bless you for your comment, my friend. The Purpose of Petals is to allow those who come here to interpret my posts on the level they understand. I think outside of the box, so am able to accept all who come to Petals. Your interpretation is beautiful and appropriate for you. My sister who is a Believer, has over time, accepted me for who I am and what I am doing, and she can see the difference I do make. My Hope is that you as well see the GOOD I do without mentioning any religion. May your day truly BE Blessed for Blessing me. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

  3. Amy, I want to respond a certain way and I’m hesitant to but I see the comment you left directly above mine about allowing those who come here to interpret posts on the level they understand. Amy, to me, there is something distinctly dark and eerie in this picture. As someone who isn’t particularly religious, religion has always had a bit of a dark side and to me this photo captured it. I actually love it!! Amazing work! Although, must add, hope that was not offensive as I had not intention of offending anyone, most especially you!!

    1. Marissa, you, my friend, could never insult me or offend me. You have every right to interpret this image in the way that it speaks to you! I deliberately stay away from religion both here at Petals and in my personal Life. How I choose to live is for me, and again I have not the right to preach to anyone about those beliefs. I Love your comments, and respect the way you think. If you see dark in this image, then that is for you to see! THIS is the reason why I allow freedom here for all to interpret as they will. Free will ….. that is our birth right. What I felt was Peace in the Moment I captured this. Yet with this too, I can see Beauty in places some are not able to. That’s just me. (smile) No worries, Marissa. None whatsoever. Thank YOU for BEing genuinely YOU. Love, Amy ❤

      1. To me this is all that matters. YOU LOVE IT. You have a unique way of interpreting data, Marissa, and your poetry reflects this. I am really honored that you think this could be on a rock n’ roll album cover. That is a WOW to me!!! I really have been missing your poetry but as it is looking now, I will be finished this week with my gardens. YAY!!!! ❤

      2. You are so good to me, Marissa. Your words at times during this gardening phase I am in, have kept me going. This has been an incredibly challenging journey for me this year. I have come round the bend, for I see the light at the end of the tunnel. 🙂

      3. Oh that’s great. Yes, gardening definitely seems difficult and I really wouldn’t know much about it, although you are a great education. A labor of love for sure…but with an awesome payoff!

  4. Oh Amy, I am so touched by the picture and the words. Especially love ” or we can elect to go with a Trust and a Calm, knowing that everything will somehow eventually stabilize, balance out, and bring to us another Branch of our Dreams.” You brought tears of Joy dedicating this post to me and all who are going through transitions. Love you my dear friend ❤ <3.

      2. I’m doing the same, Kathy. It might be a few days before I post again, because I am rolling up my sleeves and working in my Mother Garden. I want this over with! And then I have to turn around, keep weeding, fertilize, do a root flush for my roses (for insects), and always keep an eye out for critters who like to eat my flowers. So I spray with Liquid Fence. But the MAJOR part of all this regarding gardens will be behind me. *HUGE SIGH* (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

      3. Liquid Fence is an all natural product that repels deer and rabbits from eating your flowers. Some of the other “scents” are for other critters, cats being one of them. This works, Kath. The only down side, is, when it rains, you have to reapply. It can get tiring when it rains a lot. But this product has saved my Roses from the deer, and now my Tulips from the rabbits. I got about 1/2 done in my Mother Garden, more then I thought I would today. I’m ready to drop though. When this is over, I probably will be on the couch for a few days. 🙂 Seems the um “age issue” is being an issue this year. I hope not. I hope it is just the adjustments I have been getting from my chiropractor, who is really stirring the “bees”. Big (((HUGS))) to you too!!! ❤

      4. Good to know on the Liquid Fence. I sure can relate to you with the age or the adjustments. I went to a chiropractor twice a month for several years and it really helped. Haven’t been to one since we moved and need to find a good one here. So many to choose from. BIG HUGS to you also ❤

      5. I really “lucked out” on the one I am going to now. I was referred by someone who I like and trust. I had been seeing a Chiropractor for years, but he left a bitter taste in my mouth, so for a LONG time, I avoided them. This man is amazing me what he is already doing for me. I will keep you in my Heart, Kathy, that somehow the perfect Chiropractor will either be referred to you, or you will cross paths with. All things are possible when we hold a “vision” and have a deep faith in our Hearts that this too shall happen!!! 🙂 Love, Amy ❤

    1. Melissa, you are so very welcome. I am just overjoyed to hear that my work when seen by you, comes at times when most needed. (smile) Funny how those things happen.
      I am almost finished with my gardens and soon I will be able to blog. I have missed you and your blog!!!! Love, Amy ❤
