Bits of Truth

Dear Growing Soul.

When you are in the garden of growth…
it’s the most beautiful thing.

Growing isn’t easy.
Pushing through soil.
Avoiding weeds that stop you.
Seasons of dry oppressive heat.
Torrential rains threaten to flood.
And the on-lookers.

Sweet growing tender-shoot soul, you need to be careful who comes into your garden when you are growing.  Becoming…

When all the changes are happening.
During the onset of a new season.
A change in you.

It’s a time to close the garden gate and choose who can come in…

  • Some may want what you have–that new change. They’ll try to pluck you away too quickly or attempt to claim some of your growth.
  • Others might consider your growth a weed… and apply a poison to prevent or destroy your tender growing soul.
  • Some may watch…too much. And the growing feels awkward because you are watched too intensely… you need time to grow on your own–in the quiet intimacy of shade and protection.
  • And there are those that just trample over everything in the garden–carelessness–and it can be at your cost.

So sweet tender-shoot soul, close the gate–be careful who comes in.
You do control the gate.

You can choose…

My hope is that one day these Truth Cards will come to good use. Eventually I’d like to publish them with proceeds benefiting TWLOHA (because I think what they do is so very important). I have no idea how that will work, but it is a wish. For now they are my gift to you. So without further ado, here is your Truth Card to print. I’m offering one each week, collect them all and you’ll have a beautiful set of 52 cards. Simply click on the card (which takes you to my Flickr set) and download and print. I have my Truth Cards on a small easel. They look best printed 5″ x 5″. You are free to give them to others, in fact it would be a huge honor if you did. I just ask that you do not remove the copyright info. This is an honor system, I honor you, you honor me.   n♥JOY!
