The beauty of change .............................. A Note of faith N the Garden




As I write this, I am reminded of that old saying ... Everything changes & nothing remains the same. This is the big birthday month for our family, I love to celebrate on the day of the event, cause in my mind ... that's your birthday or better yet your date of birth. Photographed standing under this very large wisteria vine are my children, four years ago. The flood of the century humbled the vine, we call the beast and the presence of my children in my life has humbled me. Lillian's birthday is tomorrow the 8th day of July & Elijah's birthday is Friday July 16th. What seems to be the loss of this grand wisteria vine has caused me to weep and then pause at the sheer beauty of change. Our Tennessee weather has somewhat of a reputation, you have to have a real flexible attitude to live here, because here change is the constant, so much till we, around these parts, are know to say  " If you don't like this weather today, just wait a day or to and it will change" .... when you know this, breath this, feel this ... change is constant ... yes things, people, times are going to change ... have faith in this and when your faith begins to falter, look to the garden the garden of life & inhale change ... like a breath of fresh air ... change ... Do you weep @ the thought of change like a willow or reach for the light of change like a sunflower?

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
