Who are you & who do you want to be? Marigold – Walnut

For those who study plants, they will know that the Marigold flower helps growing plants around them.  Its bright yellow face is said to be a second sun to the plants, helping them flourish in light and happiness. They are said to heal any physical pain, such as small cuts and bruises. Their happy faces are cheery and uplifting…

However, the walnut tree, (while it grows) produces a toxin that stunts growth and wilts all the plants around it. Eventually, killing its neighbors.

You can choose to help people grow, and help them see their own potential…Or you can choose to be like a Walnut tree,  which discourages, diminishes, and can hurt others. In our family, we call bad words, & acts, poison, because it spreads nastiness all around.

I love this question – are you a Marigold or a Walnut? Because the meaning is pretty much in a lot of books/movies such as, Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings, etc. Good or Bad/light or dark is throughout in a lot of stories…Sometimes we get so caught up in our own lives that we forget why we are here on Earth.

Marigold Girls was made because we wanted to make the world a better place for girls like us…

Who are you & who do you want to be?

Be A Candle!

Recently, Jocelyn asked us to be a tree and stand firm for our beliefs. Today I want to ask you to be a candle (even though candles and trees aren’t usually a good combination, today they are!). In Luke chapter 11, verses 35-36, it says:

35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

36 If thy whole body therefore be‍ full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

I also found this neat picture:

Here's a thought I leave you to ponder... Light has no shadow! The Bible says... "God is light; in him there is no darkness at all" 1 John 1:5.:

Isn’t it so cool?

Light has no shadow! So when we have the light of God, there will be no evil in us and that’s what we want, isn’t it?! Another way to say that is: If there is no evil in us, then we have the light of God. People around us notice our light. Many times people have asked a member of the Church how they always have this bright glow around them, or how their eyes have such a SPARKLE in them. When we have the pure light of God, we can share it with others and help them receive that light! (Can you tell I love this topic?) 🙂
