Miracle Monday

What is it that signals a plant
that it's time to begin the journey...
to bloom?

 It must surely be a miracle
that each tiny element knows exactly what to do

 and is in exactly the right place 
at just the right moment
to progress toward what it is destined to become.

Step by step, 
minute by minute 
growing to fulfill the measure of their creation.

Patiently becoming a beautiful blossom!

A perfect creation.

Lovely to behold.

Bringing joy to all who gaze upon it's beauty.

happening every day 
over and over again
in gardens all across this amazing earth.

Take the time today to pause and reflect...
  notice the beauty of the miracles around you.

It will jump start your week!
