Five Minute Friday} Bloom

When I think of the word bloom I envision beautiful buds of flowers aching to see what the heavenly skies have to offer--- just reaching- reaching for something much better.
Displaying the beauty in every single precious petal, created by God himself.
I also see another side to bloom;
within those blooms petals fall... slowly fall and wither away.
The beauty of Gods creation is within each and every single one of them;
you see He is perfect; what withers away in each of those blooms He WILL rebuild.
With each petal that falls comes new life; the old has gone away to make room for the new.
I just love how God displays His works in the every day.
The way He constantly shows us the falling away of the petals; and through those withered crumpled up soft velvety petals comes a new bloom.
 The way He shows us that we will constantly be stripped away of what is no longer needed,
to make room for what He only knows we need.
Therefore I choose to rejoice where He will guide me to Bloom, aching to see what His Heavenly skies have to offer-
and rejoice in His plan for when I wither-
knowing that He will never fail,
allowing me to Bloom Forever in His Mighty Hands.


  1. Beautiful. Truly. I love the line " I just love how God displays His works in the every day."
    Me too.

  2. This was beautiful! A great way to see the beauty in falling petals. Making room for the new of what we need from Him.

  3. Isn't it a challenge to let those things fall away from our lives? Yes, God creates beauty, but he also brings fruitfulness. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here today.

    1. Definitely a challenge, yes the fruitfulness He brings is what gets me through. :) Thank you.

  4. This is really great, and your whole blog looks beautiful! Five Minute Friday Friend

  5. beautiful :) .. thank you for sharing! I love the photo you chose for the writing.


    1. Thank You Karen, it's funny because I had beautiful hydrangeas on my kitchen table for a week; they looked just like the ones in the picture- when the petals started to fall- it got me thinking--- and then the Friday prompt got me writing - lol

  6. "The way He shows us that we will constantly be stripped away of what is no longer needed..."

    That is where I am right now and it is hard . Being stripped of what I thought I wanted or needed. But to be whole for Him in the way He sees best is better than anything I could ever think of on my finite dreams.

    Beautiful post!

    So glad I found you from FMF!

    1. Better than ANYTHING!!! Soooo true! Thank You Angie so much. :)
