The Garden of My Life : What the Bees Taught Me About Goals and Dreams

Bekahs Bee Copyright

This is my story of managing multiple dreams and goals at once and how the bumble bees in my garden, along with some wisdom from friends, have inspired me to know that I don’t have to choose and I can pursue all that my heart desires.  Have you ever struggled with keeping the balance between the everyday life stuff and the passions/desires of your heart? Do you ever feel like there isn’t enough time for it all?   As many of you may know, I’ve been doing a lot of things this year (many of which I haven’t revealed here yet!).  Because one of my theme words for this year is “simple”, I have been of this mindset that I “should” only do one main thing and put everything else … Continue Reading

A Wild Turkey Stuck in My Garden (aka The Turkey Who Forgot He Had Wings)!

wild turkey

It’s story time and tonight I am telling you the tale of the turkey who forgot he had wings.  I’m feeling a bit like Beatrix Potter as I say that (writing a tale about an animal in my garden).  Maybe this will become a children’s book of mine.  Who knows?! At any rate, it was funny and inspiring and very, very odd.  And you know, everything has a story.  Maybe you will be inspired to see things a different way in your own life and spin a yarn or two :D. So on we go then!     Earlier this afternoon I heard my pug puppy barking outside and I couldn’t figure out why.  He is not one to carry on about things unless there is something to carry on … Continue Reading

Gorgeous Sunset Photos Inspired by Tonight’s Caribbean Blue Sky

I thought I’d share a simple post from my world tonight.  It is mostly pictures.  Today was my parents anniversary and they invited me over for a little ice cream sundae party.  I was feeling quite tired tonight and was going to get a ride instead of walking, but I’m very glad I chose the walk instead.  The sun happened to just be setting as I took off:       I was walking down the street with a casserole dish of a fresh strawberry mango crisp dessert I had just baked , so I took these photos one handed with my cell phone haha.  Because of the houses and trees in the way I wasn’t able to quite capture the full effect of this gorgeous sunset.  There was a … Continue Reading

Where I Belong – Poetry in Five and Some News for You!

Ivy Growing up Garden gate

The past two weeks I have been delinquent with my Friday poetry, so I have an especially lovely treat to make up for that today!  This treat comes along with news I have been meaning to share, but was waiting until everything was final before spilling the beans.  Today’s word Lisa Jo asked us to write on was the word BELONG.  I chose to write a rhyming poem about my garden!  So the big news is that after years of struggles, and then 2 years after being second in line for homes and a few disappointments, Matt and I have bought our first home!!   God has given me more than I could have ever imagined, and I have been so busy with it all.  SO much excitement and so … Continue Reading
