I've spent all day working on my teaching for the upcoming & Women's Conference at Orchard -- Rise and Shine Women's Retreat -- and I am just filled to overflowing right now with God's good heart toward his creatures. I am filled to overflowing with the knowledge of how much he wants for us ... and how very often we refuse his good gifts.
In some of my reading today, I came across this little bit of writing from David Whyte and it just struck me to the core with its painful truth:
“Sometimes reading … I look out at everything growing so wild and faithfully beneath the sky and wonder why we are the one terrible part of creation privileged to refuse our flowering.” (David Whyte)
What if we simply did nothing except refuse to "refuse our flowering?"
What might our lives look like then?
