acorn

This simple little acorn reminded me 

that there is always hope…

that when the darkness seems to overcome us there is always light somewhere to be found…

that when the darkness takes the form of tragedy, 
the light comes to us through the kindness of others…

that in our endings are our beginnings…

that some things within us have to die so that something new can take root.

This little acorn showed me

that from the simplest, smallest act can come the greatest impact…

that often it is up to us to plant the seed

and cultivate it

so that it can grow.

  1. Lovely image — so simple, yet full of meaning. It really resonated with me, as I've had lots of endings and beginnings these past few months. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog, I look forward to continuing to learn along with you in 2013!

  2. What a beautiful acorn. Nature is the perfect artist. You received so much inspiration from this little natural wonder. "In our endings are our beginnings" is perfect to remember and it happens time and time again. May the light always shine in your darkness to lead the way.
    Thank you for your visit and for your friendly comments at my place!

  3. Lovely Deborah! What an amazing message to take from this simple, small seed. Big things can grow from something small, once planted and nurtured. Thank you for sharing this beautiful message in the Photo-Heart Connection this month! Happy New Year!

  4. Wow…all that inspiration and insight from something so small. I like the choice of BW for this image and it being alone-nearly as sturdy as the tree it will become, in this stark setting.
