I have started walking. Again. We’ll see. . .
Anyhow, on my walking route I pass this lovely garden area next to someone’s front door. I mean it is lovely. Lots of flowering plants (even in this triple digit heat we have had for weeks now) and large green leaves. It is well maintained and cared for. You can tell.
Planted in the very front, for all the passersby to see, are two signs. One is so pretty and in colorful cursive says “Love grows here.” What a neat sentiment. Inviting. Hopeful. Maybe even inspiring. Until you look next to it.
And you see
Black and orange. Bright, glaring, ugly. “You are not wanted,” it says. “You are not welcome.” In spite of what is right next to it about love, this is the message that is most boldly proclaimed.
And it made me wonder. . .
Which of these two signs does my life portray? And I boldly proclaiming that no one is welcome in my life?
Or am I saying I am trying hard to grow love and would like to share it?
Which is the sign your life is proclaiming?
