Despite forces that hit with deadly force, She insisted, persisted to fight back. Time and time again her lovely head drooped with what would seem defeat, only to fool those forces whose intent was to kill. She went within. There She gathered her power, and waited, waited for the opportunity to again stand tall. Quietly with no fuss, gradually she gained majestic momentum to one day stand in all Her glory.
She deceived the Deceiver into believing He had won when Her lovely head drooped with what looked like death. As time passed, proudly and with great Strength She once again held high Her arms to display the fruits of Her efforts. Against all odds, she glowed with victory! I won I won She silently and brilliantly declared for all to see! Nothing will defeat me for I was created to live!
And so she who gently tends to Her every need stood stock still when her gaze happened upon this glorious sight, one that even she did not think she would see this year. Standing there in deep amazement and awe, this powerful Garden Spirit whispered to her saying,
“Take my example and apply it to your own life. No matter how many times others attempt to destroy you, reach deep down to find the power and strength that yes do exist in order to overcome the Destroyer that encroaches at night.”
And as for other fruits of Mother, they too struggled and battled this year with so many deterrents. The Destroyer threw so much at them over and over that she who gently tends their needs “thought” how poorly they would be able to show themselves. Yet they attest how to show their True Selves again despite all odds. No snow, rain, hail, vicious winds, freezing temperatures broke their spirit! Oh no! The proof undoubtedly says it all!
Under a sky so incredibly blue, a blue I’ve never seen in WNY
Not only blooms but furred and feather friends abound.
May the Peace this post has been sprinkled with remain with you.
We who know how to look upon Mother as our Example by which to live our lives, understand that we have been given the means to stay healthy. I’m not sure what Hers is called but ours is called our Immune System.
