Leaning In

It’s funny how even my plants can teach me lessons.

I recently placed my spider plant near the front window.  It only took overnight to perk right back up.  I’m thinking that actually watering it may have helped a bit {wink}.

I am no botanist but I do know that these plants move towards the sun.  Even my flowering perennials outside perk up and open wide in the afternoon sun.

Every flower"s reachin' for the sun

What strikes me is that these plants naturally lean towards the light.  They know where the real life is.

I forget that sometimes.  I forget that leaning into the sun is warm and loving and right.  I forget how the warmth can encompass me and sanctify my heart.

The days get busy and life passes by quickly. We spend days, weeks, months just going through the motions.

I don’t want to live my life like that.

We are here for a mere blink of the eye and I want to be present for it all.

I want a firm grip on the truth during times of grief, doubt, anger, and sadness.

I want to cherish it in times of joy, happiness, peace, and love.

Lord, help me to remember to Lean Into You.
