THINK ABUNDANTLY

October 17, 2018

“Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger." Saint Basil


Today, while walking our dogs, the thought of having an abundant point of view came into mind. Towards the end of the walk, in our neighbors front yard, stood a dying agave with a large stalk shooting into the sky. Taking a look closer at the stalk, which usually has flowers, there were hundreds of baby agaves.

Agaves only bloom once and as they bloom, the plant dies. This plant built up a mass of energy and instead of holding it all in, it sends it out. All of it. 

 
The dried up old body becoming a shelter for animals while breaking down back into the dirt. It is sad losing the plant, but beautiful when facing death it bursts out with new life.
