Our Own Transformation

The lone rose bloom looked over at the bush dripping with flowers and wondered why. Why would I be all by myself while my neighbor is surrounded by so much? Why would I exist in isolation when the roses next to me are crammed together, appearing to be so happy.

Isn’t that how we sometimes view our own existence? Unable to see our many blessings because we become consumed with what are neighbor has.

If only we can be grateful for what we have instead of preoccupied with the lives and material things of others.

But how?

Look closely at the lone flower. The bloom is larger and richer in color than his neighbor. It has a unique beauty that comes on a bush of one.

Once it spreads its pedals, the flower will become exceptional. Just like each of us.

If we can allow our true self to bloom with a deep seated gratitude for our creator, we can be transformed into the creation we were fashioned to be.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
