Thoughtful Tuesday..

Thankful for my NOW

“This instant—this one now—is always your life’s beginning, a fresh chance to start living your destiny.” ~Unknown~

This quote popped up in my memories so I decided to pair it with this photograph I took the other day while on my Soul Stroll. The Now of this leaf’s life was to share its autumnal color and beauty with me. It’s nearing its end, yet is this the leaf’s final destiny?! Nope, for through decomposition, it will continue to live on, giving its nutrients to the soil.

Which got me remembering how I’ve tried living and reliving the past, and then having to ask myself, how’s that working for you Linda? 🤷🏻‍♀️ and of course I’ve tried living for the future, waiting for that something better to come along, all the while life was passing me by…….

So, I choose to live my life Now, to embrace it and appreciate the moment. The ups, the downs, the curves and detours, because I know God has it mapped out, and with Faith, I follow 👣knowing exactly where my final destiny will be ✝️

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5)

  1. Amen! Such a beautiful analogy. And as it decomposes it fills the earth back with nutrients. I pray as I decompose, somehow my legacy will fill my family back with the nutrients I sow into them, from God’s Word, His ways and HIS LOVE!

Have something to share....I'd love to hear it!!!
