Years ago, my husband gave me a little card that I’ve kept tucked in my prayer book all this time. It included a graphic of a flowering plants and five simple words:
Bloom where you are planted
Simple words with a seemingly simple message. Of course I’m going to bloom where I am. Where else would I bloom?
Lots of places, actually. But, God put you where you are right now for specific reason and to fulfill a specific mission. Often we miss that essential point, becoming discontent with what God has given us and where he’s placed us. We’d prefer to “bloom” anywhere but where we are right now.
I’ll be presenting on this topic to the Christian Women of The Basilica of St. Josephat at 6:30pmCT on Tuesday, May 16.
The event is open to the public and if you’re in the area, I’d love for you to come. We’ll have some fun and lively discussion as well.
