The Great Mother

"Her self-evident mystery is one of Divine love, 
the very presence of the eternal in the transient 
like the fragrance exuding from a flower."
~ Shambhavi
I selected this flower photo to post and then recalled
that it was guiding my journey
on the road to Mom's house last year....


  1. Rose of Sharon reminds me of my grandmother. We have quite a few bushes of it -- all descended from two plants I brought to NC from my grandmother's yard in Florida. And her original plants came from her sister's yard in Alabama and probably those came from their mother's yard...

  2. Thank you for sharing this, Vicki. How absolutely wonderful that you were able to bring the plant to your home from your family line of women! Sounds like this flower is indeed a mothering one!

  3. "the very presence of the eternal in the transient" - how lovely, and how true!!

  4. Yes, isn't that line Divine, Brenda?


Thank you for stopping by. With open heart, I welcome your thoughts however you wish to share them, whether via personal email or as a comment here. ~ Bright Blessings ~
