You cannot always clearly see all possible options in a given situation or understand how or why you are in the situation to begin with. Often it is only in retrospect that you understand the reasons
and the lessons that needed to be learned from dramatic shifts.

Like a listening ear, a sympathetic touch, or a knowing look, this essence helps us to hold our pain in a place of deep understanding where you can address your feelings -- such as loss or abandonment – with great wisdom and strength. Then from this place of strength you can move forward in peace and trust, knowing that love is eternal, and, although you are not able to see your destiny, you can trust that when you act from this faithful space you will find your way through. Whatever the current trauma, you emerge wiser, clearer, and more compassionate – able to embrace a new destiny with a clearer understanding of God’s will and purpose in your life.
The Sweet Annie in our gardens can grow as large as a Christmas tree. My daughter Haniel is responsible for the large wild crop that graces our property every fall. Several years ago she was playing fairy with a large spray of Sweet Annie for a wand. She danced about the garden, tapping each flower, bush, rock and tree with her wand as the Sweet Annie seeds copiously poured forth, abundantly distributing to every nook and cranny. what a wonder to find this sweet-smelling plant growing everywhere the next summer!
