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?


  1. What a lovely post Sonya. And such a beautiful wistera plant. How lovely you have a pic of it with your two beautiful children. Jackie O said "the most important job you will ever have is being a mother..." And thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely comment... it gave my heart a flutter and a smile... Thank you for supporting me on my artistic journey. I really appreciate it. Love & blessings, xoxo Valerie

  2. Beautiful post! Change is going to happen whether we like it or not... so I love how you put it, "inhale change... like a breath of fresh air..." Love it! :)

  3. One thing that is constant in my life is change. Something i cannot avoid but i have learned to embrace it ~ it takes alot of practise and courage. Sounds like a wonderful month for you! I love celebrations of any kind! Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!

Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with  thyroid cancer .

I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
