Moving Beyond the Obvious

So.  I have that deck of Sacred Invitations cards, y'know?*  Every now and then, I shuffle the deck and pull out a new card and stick it on my desk.  To think about and ponder and live with for awhile.  To see where it takes me.

Yesterday, I pulled this card.

And I laughed out loud.
Because I just randomly pulled the "grow" card from a deck of 48 cards?  Now?  

GROW

So initially, I thought . . . no brainer here, right? Because spring has arrived all of a sudden.  (As it does.)  And my garden is finally waking up.  GROW . . . it's just all around me.  I can see it.  Nothing to think about.  No need to ponder.

GROW

As the day wore on, though, I kept thinking about the card and the word.  What seems simple and obvious at first glance . . . is often deeper and more complicated.  If you consider.  And really look.  And open yourself just a little bit.

Maybe . . . there's more to this card than the obvious connection to spring and my garden and its coming to life again.

GROW

So I'm going to live with this word for a bit.  To see where it might lead me (besides the garden).  What can I explore?  How can I grow?  Where will I go?

GROW

Let's see. . .

Now, that is interesting! The obvious and the not so obvious! I can't wait to see where this goes!

Vicki

Oh yes, I think there's more to this...

Meanwhile, HELLO SUMMER! Sheesh. I am LOVING all of the things that are GROWING in my yard!!

Carole

I think there's often a deeper meaning to so many things that seem obvious on the surface. GROW is the perfect word for right now for many reasons, I'm sure.

Mary

I don't believe in coincidences ... this card was meant for you right now! I look forward to seeing where it takes you - to the garden for sure, but also to a few other new places!

Vera

What a great word! So many possibilities, so many options. Looking forward to reading where it takes you. I think I need one of those decks of cards.

Bonny

It's good to think, and then think more and deeper! With everything going on outdoors, it's almost impossible to ignore growth, but I think you're making a wise choice to live with the word and see where it will lead you. I'm looking forward to seeing where that might be (and of course, seeing your garden also)!

Patty

A most excellent word Kym! One we should all consider now and again. :-)

margene

I have never met a person who grows more than you do, every minute, every day, every year!

Jane

Grow - what an intriguing word with so many possibilities.

Jo

You might see your word grow proliferly!

Honore

And as you grow, so shall we...for I love how you share "lessons" with us; thank you! To be continued ...

Cheers~
