Where the Beautiful Flowers Live


This, a day that used to cause me great fear,

Is met today with love!

My world has grown into a beautiful garden,

fertile with all the ingredients necessary

to foster beautiful flowers,

the flowers of love, grace, kindness, compassion

They grow with such beauty

that people can’t take their eyes off them

they grow and they spread out to other gardens

and soon, the world is full of these wonderful delights

Every garden exists because the beautiful flowers

fill the luscious landscape

for where the flowers of love, grace, kindness and compassion grow

there is no room for the weeds….

the weeds of fear, doubt, hate, prejudice, anger, and violence

can not grow

Where the beautiful flowers live!





For many years, August 19th turned out to be a very bad day for me.  It was probably just a coincidence at first, but when I started to think that bad things would happen…guess what??…. Bad things happened!!!

I am happy to say that I fully expected today to be “magnificent!” ….and guess what??….IT WAS!!!

Our thoughts are things….and they manifest into our reality.  So…BE AWARE of your thoughts….change your thoughts if you need to….TAKE CONTROL!!!  It works! πŸ™‚

  1. πŸ™‚ What a lovely poem!! πŸ™‚ You are taking your power back!! Your lovely magnificent power!! πŸ™‚ I am so so happy that your day turned out to be so beatiful!! πŸ™‚ How lovely! I think you made it beautiful! πŸ™‚ And that is what we have to, when there is no beauty we have to create beauty, when there is no happiness we have to create happiness, even if it is just for ourselves πŸ™‚ Lots and lots of Love to you my sweet brave powerful soulsister! πŸ™‚

    1. “Sweet, brave, powerful,…..oh my!!! You dear dear Trini!! πŸ™‚ Thank you giver of light!! I love everything you said….and it is all so true…true…true!! Yes, we have to make it the way we want it! I hope your day was beautiful as well!! <3 <3

  2. Wonderful poem and metaphors Lorrie! πŸ™‚ Sounds like your planting and tending with care is really starting to blossom! I’ve used the garden analogy before, but not as beautifully stated as here. Thanks for planting some of those seeds in my garden! πŸ™‚ I appreciate you. <3

    1. Oh…Thank you Brad!! I really appreciate you too!! Thank you for the beautiful comment. That’s the beauty of seeds isn’t it?…they keep coming back and you can share!! Hope you are wonderful!! <3

  3. I agree. If you fear a fear it tends to come upon you, but I’ve often found the reverse true also. if in faith you don’t fear something it has no power over you. Don’t understand how it works but it does seem to.

    1. Hi Claire…I know right!! What we fear does come to us! Best to plant so much good stuff that there isn’t any room for fear!!! Thanks for stopping by and for commenting πŸ™‚

  4. Lorrie, there’s a Bible verse that says, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear.” The two are mutually exclusive. When we fill our thoughts and hearts with love, our minds have no room for seeds of fear. Beautiful post, Lorrie.

    1. Hi Susan! Thank you πŸ™‚ Yes….I know when I come from a place of love then no fear can exist! It’s a beautiful thing! Hope you are settling in nicely! <3

  5. I love this poem Lorrie! …. And I also believe that weeds are plants and flowers that we see as invasive in our flower bed. They are beautiful in their own way. It is our thinking and conditioning that wants them gone. They don’t fit in with what we want. Nature treats them exactly the same as hybrid roses….
    Not easy for the gardener in me! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Val. Thank you! I know I have seen flowering “weeds” and come to think of it…eh…they can be quite pretty! So I can only imagine the paradox for a gardener! But I don’t think the same goes for my icky weeds in my poem πŸ™‚ Hope your world is awesome and bright! <3

  6. Beautiful, beautiful Lorrie. How true it is that we have more control than we think and from our thoughts we manifest our realities. Peace & Love, Lorlinda

    1. Hi Lorlinda!! Thank you so much!! I’m happy you liked this one. I become more and more amazed at how our thoughts impact our daily lives! Much love to you πŸ™‚

    1. So, so true! I’m reminded of a saying I’ve heard in reference to sports but that I’ve used in life…”fake it till you make it!” And there have been times that I did just that!!! Thanks so much for stopping by…and for commenting! πŸ™‚

  7. Praise the Lord and hallelujah!!!! I’m so glad you had such a lovely day. You deserve this lovely day. It was a gift to you from God. And yes, our thoughts have everything to do with the way our days and lives turn out. So you keep on going up that ladder and NEVER look back, except maybe at the good stuff. Hugs and blessings, Natalie πŸ™‚

    1. Oh…dear Natalie! ! I can feel your beautiful energy through this post…I am so grateful….I can hardly express the love I feel <3. Yes…it is one of many, many gifts from God! I see you as a gift, also!! Thank you for the beauty you add to the world πŸ™‚

    1. And you don’t even know how FUNNY that is!!…a couple years ago my girlfriend called someone “lovely”…I told her “you never called me lovely” to which she replied “I didn’t know you were going for lovely!” It has been a joke ever since!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  8. love, grace, kindness, compassion… your garden is Heaven dear Lorrie!
    deep and true metaphor, as you say: “where the flowers of love, grace, kindness and compassion grow, there is no room for the weeds….”, in a way, we are gardeners, gardeners of our soul… there’s another miracle too: sometimes, thanks to beautiful souls like yours, “fear, doubt, hate, prejudice, anger, and violence” turn into confidence, love, care, quietness and peace… wonderful present Lorrie! much love to you πŸ™‚

    1. Oh dear FrΓ©dΓ©ric. ..I wish with all my might that that is true!!! What a beautiful gift it would be πŸ™‚ Just as your words are a wondrous present that I just unwrapped…and I couldn’t be more grateful. Sometimes in life, magical energy is created when souls reunite!!! I am very grateful to you…because you make me want to be better every single day!! I thank you for your presence in my life!! πŸ™‚ <3 <3

    1. Ahhhhh!!!! Yes!! Each and every one of us stand alone in beauty…but together we are shining with brilliance! !! So beautiful. ..Thank you for this gift πŸ™‚ <3

    1. Why, Uncle Tree…you are either psychic….or you visited dear FrΓ©dΓ©ric’s blog today πŸ™‚ or maybe it’s a little of both…? Thank you so very much for the wish!! I love wishes…Disney…”A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” <3 <3

    1. I am not much of a gardener in the soil outside (though I LOVE LOVE LOVE the benefits I receive from those who do) But, I really like the visual of tending to those beauties inside us. I am so grateful for your beautiful comment!! <3 <3 Thank You!

  9. I AM where those flowers are, Lorrie. I AM LOVE. Thoughts are tricky little monkeys, ya know. You think you know them, and surprise, they sneak up from behind you and bite ya. Yep. True. We all need a rake for our mind gardens to pull those negative weeds out. I LOVED this you know. I just now have the moment or two to comment. Wonderful poem. And the flowers are so you that I see you in them. (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. Oh Amy…I just love your comment! Thank you so much! (Especially that you see me in those flowers…what a compliment!) I know you ARE love and where those flowers are!!! That comes across so clear in every post you publish. Thank you dear Amy…your post today was so lovely!! I won’t be around tomorrow. ..I am going to NYC to see my son!! I’m so excited πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      1. OH, Lorrie, have a fabulous visit with your son. You won’t be too far away from me … just a mere I think 800 miles. Or is it 600? Have FUN!!!!! Enjoy every moment!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

        1. I will send you a beautiful cloud of love and healing! You will be good as new before you know it….and back on the court wielding your stick!! πŸ™‚

You are an amazing person to have the ability to produce so much positive energy, and it can be felt all these many miles away. Please have a wonderful weekend, and take good care.

    Much love,

    1. Hi Pepper! You are so kind…your words mean a whole lot to me (you brought a little tear to my eyes!) It makes me so happy to hear that you can feel the positive energy….so many miles away!! I am becoming more and more a student of energy and it’s impact. I just LOVE that mine can touch you so πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Thanks for the well wishes for the weekend! ! I believe it will be great…and I wish you a beautiful weekend full of love and positive energy!!! <3

  11. Beautiful work Lorrie. “…and these three remain: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love.” (1 Cor. 13) As a poet, I know you may have an appreciation for the Great Poet in the sky! Thank you for the visit(s) yesterday.
