The 5 Stages of Grief and a Hummingbird Messenger!

ruby throated hummingbird

“I measure every Grief I meet With narrow, probing, eyes –  I wonder if It weighs like Mine –  Or has an Easier size. I wonder if They bore it long –  Or did it just begin… “ -Emily Dickinson   I am still here. I am still living inspired. I have had a very difficult year thus far. The majority of the painful things I have been going through will not show up on this blog, simply because some things are of too much of a personal nature to share. The overall theme of the year however has been dealing with the pain that comes with loss- in all its many forms. Some losses are literal deaths, and some are metaphorical deaths. Sometimes things have to unravel. They have to fall apart … Continue Reading

Growing Wings – Inspirational Poetry by Rebekah

Butterfly on purple flower

Growing Wings Sometimes life knocks us down and we Forget all that we’re meant to be. Forget our power and our light, Forget that we are made for flight. Forget that we can SOAR above, Forget that we all come from Love. Forget that we can overcome, Forget our story is not done. Forget the reason we are here, When weighted down by human fear. But you are not just flesh and bones, Broken by life’s sticks and stones! You, my dear, are made for more, You are spirit- created to SOAR! You are Love, you are Light, You are a star glowing in the night! You may have forgotten, but it’s okay, Sometimes life can be that way. You can grow wings-it’s not too late, These bumps and potholes … Continue Reading

In Between the Silences – Poetry by Rebekah

candle in the dark

This weeks poem , “In Between the Silences”, is inspired by the one word prompt at Five Minute Friday, “Pause”. Friday Morning I woke with poetry in my head for some reason, and the words flowed from my pen like water from a sieve. Here is my 5 minute poem! In Between the Silences In the wee hours of morn, before the world is stirring much, before the sun has touched the land with golden fingers of light, before the first bird has sung her song- I awaken. Memories of the past knocking at the door of my mind, like a distant dream that almost never was. You were there, shining your love upon my wounded soul, like a comforting candle illuminating the dark. I was there, witnessing your glory, … Continue Reading

An Unlikely Bloom – Inspirational Poetry by Rebekah

flower blooming in concrete crack

My latest poem for the poetry book I am working on. Like most of my nature themed poetry, here we can draw on inspiration from beauty that blooms in unlikely places, knowing we too can bloom in less than perfect conditions. Bloom, and thrive even! Enjoy! xoxo, Rebekah   An Unlikely Bloom   It wasn’t in the garden It wasn’t with the rest, It didn’t grow in greenery, Conditions weren’t the best. It didn’t have much space to bloom It didn’t have much light, Just a concrete jungle A less than perfect site. It found a crack in which to bloom A ray of hope crept in, And seeped down deep into the dirt Stirring all within. A little seed began to sprout And grow out towards the light, It … Continue Reading

Symphony of Life – Inspired Poetry by Rebekah

winter woodland flowers

It’s Five Minute Friday, which for my blog means poetry time! Today’s word is TURN. Let’s see what I can come up with in 5 minutes or so….     Symphony of Life   From February until first frost of Fall, Everything has its turn. First the snowdrops, Then the Winter aconite- Little woodland flowers, Dotting the hills with hope. By March the crocus are coming purple, white, yellow, striped Miracle flowers are these- Pushing their way up through frigid snow. Soon to follow are the daffodils, hyacinth, hellebores And then we really know Spring is on its way. The tulips take their turn, Opening their bright faces to the sun- Standing tall, Dancing in the rain. Cue tiny buds on trees Quietly exploding into leaves and blossoms Adorning bare … Continue Reading

You Make a Difference! – Poetry by Rebekah

olELFIy

It’s poetry time again! It’s been so long since I’ve written and shared the poem of the week here (which I typically did on Friday). I had taken time away from it to work on my poetry book, but am thinking of returning to the Five Minute Friday community. I was inspired to to work on my poetry again by a sweet woman who recently read a poem of mine and left me the most wonderful comment that she had sent it to her 93 year old mother, some other people as well, and reads it herself every morning. I don’t think there is any better feeling in the world for a writer, than to know your words have touched someone in some way. This poem I wrote is a … Continue Reading

God Has a Plan for Your Life – My Home Story :Part 4

jeremiah-29_11

I’m back with the fourth installment of my home story! If you are new, you will want to read Part 1 , Part 2, and Part 3 first. We last left off with me having this very specific desire in my heart for a certain kind of house in a certain location. My fiance was starting to get discouraged and impatient. My dad was trying to convince me to “settle” so I could just move on with things already! I was about to make the mental shift to start manifesting the dream in my heart. I will tell you how I did that, because you might want some inspiration on how to manifest something too!   Step 1: Tuning Out the Naysayers   The first thing I had to do … Continue Reading

God Has a Plan for Your Life – My Home Story Part 3

jeremiah-29_11

It’s time for the third installment in one of my favorite personal testimonies of hopelessness to miracles! If you missed parts 1 & 2 you will want to catch up. Part 1 is HERE, and Part 2 is HERE. We last left off with me finding out that I lost the home I thought God had for us. I was angry and confused, still not able to see God’s plan for my life. While the house thing was a done deal, I still had some healing to do with my health issues. I am sure being stuck in bed in pain didn’t help my mood. That and the fact that once I WAS able to walk again , the house we lost was literally right there staring at me every … Continue Reading

God Has a Plan For Your Life- My Home Story Part 2

jeremiah-29_11

If you missed part 1 of this story , you can click HERE to read that and catch up to speed. This is a continuation of one of the life lessons I’ve learned on trusting God’s plan and that His plan is GOOD, even when it doesn’t make sense at the time. My home story is my favorite story and testimony out of everything God has done for me, because it’s really where I got to see what God had planned for me when I came “out the other side” of some of the trials I have been through. Back to the story then…   We last left off where God showed me a scene in a dream and urged me to act by calling a realtor on the house … Continue Reading

God Has a Plan for Your Life – My Home Story Part 1

jeremiah-29_11

There are so many hurting people out there.  If you are going through a tough time right now, please know that you are not alone.  You are also not without hope (although at times I know it feels like it).  God has a plan for your life, and that is what I want to talk about today.  I am inspired to share on this topic because I have been contacted privately by several people in very dire circumstances lately, and while my life is in a good place right now, it has not always been this way.  I don’t know if I am called to help people through my own journey or not, but there was a long hard road I walked that led me to inspired living and to … Continue Reading
