Where Would You Like To Go?

Five Minute Friday: Bloom

If you're interested in joining me in the FMF - just click here for instructions or you can always just write your post in my comment section - I love hearing from you!



The flowers in Tulear are quite amazing & beautiful...especially considering even the nationals here talk about what a dirty town Tulear is.  The blooms are vibrant in color and make the winter months here even more lovely.

Their colors draw our attention and we often comment on how beautiful they are. But have you ever stopped and gazed at a stem or a seed?  Aren't they just as important?  There could be no bloom without the seed, the roots, the stem...the blooms themselves only last for such a short while in the grand scheme of things yet they normally get the most applause.

Isn't it a little ironic how much of our lives are the same way?  The Lord is growing us, trimming us, planting us, watering us all so His fruit can bloom in our lives.  The process is often very dirty and muddy...there are times that we may feel trampled on and broken...but the bloom will come.

Find a way today to be thankful for whatever He is doing in your life that is getting you ready to bloom.



  1. We tend to pay too much attention to the blooms and ignore other parts that are essential for producing something beautiful. Thank you for pointing this out.

  2. I love your take on "Bloom". We often sit waiting for the flower to blossom and don't value the seed or stem or a good pruning in our lives. My Bloom post was similar in a way to yours! Great minds think alike! :)


I'd love to hear from you! Please share any thoughts or questions you have!
