Noticing Miracles

Over at Sanctuary for November, our theme is Noticing Miracles.  We’ve removed the password, you are free to access at any time – so why not pop over now and check it out?

I am enjoying November.  I awoke to the sound of rain this morning, which hasnt happened for so long, we’re labelling it a miracle!  And, as I talk about in Sanctuary, things are blooming here in Brisbane – especially the trees.

This year, we bought two beautiful big pots to sit near our front door, and planted Magnolia Little Gems (the non-deciduous kind – the other kind wont grow here, it’s too hot).  And we have been keeping the water up them (despite only being able to ‘bucket’ water, due to the restrictions) and watching eagerly for flowers.

This week we were rewarded for our patience, with the first two flowers opening.  They are magnificent!  Bigger than my hand, with huge, luscious petals.

And I was so thankful for the ability to work from home, and therefore to be here to notice the blooms and really relish them, as they happen.  Each flower only lasts a couple of days, so it is important to enjoy them as they open.

Are you noticing the beauty around you?  Do you surround yourself with things that make you smile, that lift your heart, and make you stop, if even for a moment, and take a deep, satisfying breath?  What’s stopping you?
