Only to Love

20170501_204028

As I walk so freely on my path

I know in my heart

That I am guided by love

The faith I feel as each obstacle is unveiled

Surpasses the fear of the multiple unknowns

I look inside through different eyes

And there is a kaleidoscope of colors

That grow in their hue

And depth of meaning

What once was used to hurt

Now only shows in shadows

Weeds to be plucked

Origin to be noticed

I am growing my love

From the inside out

And the light that surrounds my being

Has an essence that I felt before

And I remember

When my soul

Was tethered

Only to love

Blessitude!

Lorrie ❀

        1. It is a lifelong process, I think, Brad. The beauty of life at this stage is that we KNOW about it, as opposed to living in the dark and not being aware πŸ™‚ Hope this day is shining bright on you ❀

    1. Yes, Sue! ‘Opening tight buds!’ I surmise that we will always have some of that work to do…yes? I am so happy to post and to feel the loving energy of our community here. Life has been very hectic and it has been hard to be in creative energy. I am creating…just a different kind of creating πŸ˜‰
      I hope that you are enjoying life and you must be in your garden…yes? I have such a funny story…I was in a plant store (outside and it was raining.) I lost my balance (I was pushing a cart) and I tried every way I could not to fall…but my foot slipped under the metal shelving they had beautiful arrangements in. My friend turned and saw the whole thing happen…just as I went ‘down’ ever so slowly…and landed right smack dab on one of those beautiful arrangements!! I felt so bad as I tried to fluff it up again. The next thing you knew we were laughing so hard that tears were coming out of our eyes…and people were walking by with very strange looks on their faces!! We won’t soon forget my soft landing!!
      Thank you my sister…I have missed you. Sweet blessings ❀ ❀ ❀

      1. Haha… there-in is a message for you.. As you laugh at your fall.. And and showing you there is a soft landing.. We all of us lose our balance at times in life.. And the best medicine is to laugh..
        Good to see you Laurie too, and know you are creating even if its something quite different.. And I hope all is coming together as you create a home from the heart my friend.. ❀ Missed you too..
        Sending LOVE my friend.. Take care of You my friend. πŸ’—πŸ˜πŸ’πŸ’–

        1. Thanks, Sue! It is safe advice, indeed. So easy to get caught up in the ‘caretaking aspect’ of someone else that you forget a little about taking care of yourself. It is a time of transition, and we are all working through it.
          Much love and light to you, beautiful soul, trusted friend. πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’—

  4. This is exquisite, Lorrie! Every word and image. I too have been away from blogging for 6 months now. I think my muse left on Nov 8th. I want her back. You have inspired me today – you and all the conversations back and forth within our beautiful WP community. You sound like you are in a really good place. I’m glad. Much love you you! ❀

    1. Oh, Mary! I don’t like to hear that you think your muse left…and that you know a date! I am sending you beautiful white light…golden at the edges…and it is full of LOVE…and JOY! May this light stoke your inner soul and coupled with the incredible energy we all create together, I wish for you to feel your muse…stirring inside you!
      Life has a few challenges for me right now…but I know that I am on the right path and I know that what I am doing is coming from the deepest place of my heart. I walk through the hard days with faith that things will get better πŸ˜‰
      Much love to you ❀ I so look forward to seeing what your muse inspires in you!! Thank you for your love!

      1. Well, the date was the election. It kinda threw me. Also really busy and my computer broke AGAIN. I went through 5 computers last year! So weird. I’m fine…just hard to write. Thank you for your kind words! She will come back when she does, and I will be happy to have her around again.Thank you for your love!! ❀

        1. Oh..you betcha, Mary!! Loads of it I send to you. I should have known it was the election because it ‘threw me’ too!!!
          It has turned out to be one of those times in life that seem like a bad dream and couldn’t possibly be happening…and yet everywhere I turn I see evidence that it isn’t a dream. And the worst part is ‘the people’ don’t appear to be waking up…no matter how ridiculous it all appears!! I’ve tried not to bring it here, too much, but i think like you…that there is a degree of ‘stuffing’ these feelings down/away…and quite possibly the light gets turned down also.
          Sorry for the rant…i just want you to know that my heart feels your pain.
          I hope you get to be in nature this weekend and that your muse touches your soul πŸ’œ

    1. πŸ™‚ Hi Bela! Much of my healing journey has centered around the fact that I did all I could do to ignore what was happening on the inside…it can be a very scary place πŸ˜‰ I am learning that real love is an antidote to just about EVERYTHING!!
      Sending Peace and Joy to you, Bela!!

  9. Hi Lorrie. I like how you used the word ‘tethered’. It fits nicely. I love what you did with the flower picture there at the end. Did you digitally paint it?
    Hope you are doing well.

      Thanks so much! I manipulated the photo in an app called PicsArt…so the app really does the work and I just tell it what to do. I like how it came out too! I always say I would live to handpaint some of these images…but oh so many things to do before that πŸ˜‰
      Hope the end of your week is super πŸ’œ
