Broad Places

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”― Henri Matisse

“Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.” – Psalm 118:5

In the struggles, the holes, the waiting, there is a broad place.
Where simple beauty, deep joy and hope resides.
Beneath the surface of fleeting feelings, flat assumptions and empty opinions.
Awaiting our arrival.
Inviting rest, ease, quiet.
See both flowers and weeds today.
Gaze longer at the flowers.
The current is moving.
The seeds are breaking open.
Life unfolding in each moment.
Blooming in the broad places and thin spaces of now.

“One day you will look back and see that all along, you were blooming.” – Morgan Harper Nichols
