I am at home convalescing a torn tendon in my ankle. This morning as I look out the picture pane window in my bedroom I can see the marvels of nature as a Saskatoon bush in full bloom, stands still to its purpose. It is a small bush compared to the 40 year old trees that tower over it. And like the Saskatoon bush they too stand still according to their purpose.

The room is silent and I just keep staring out at the beauty before me. A feel a sense of peace that is somewhat foreign to me and I silently say the words “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10 NIV)

Ok, I will rest in this place of calm tranquility and let Gods mercy and love fill my spirit. I will breathe in the fresh air, deep and with intention, cleanse me heavenly father. Let me always look to you when the burdens of childhood cancer days press heavy on my mind. When my moods become low and I can see nothing but the tears in my eyes and forget that in you God, I have hope.

A Saskatoon bush in full bloom standing still and getting ready to produce its fruit according to its purpose, reminds me that I am a child of God and I must move forward in faith, hope and love. God has a plan for me, I shall live according to my purpose.
