A few months ago I took my sweet friend @calli_sparrowandlilies to Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in Pawhuska Oklahoma and last weekend my aunt Cheryl came from Florida and I took her also.
I love driving through the Oklahoma Prairie, the beauty and peacefulness is unlike any other place, especially when you get to drive right near the wild bison grazing through their 23,000 acres of protected land.
But the story I want to share is a simple fact we learned about the bison. As they walk through the Prairie, their hooves naturally till the soil and Prairie seeds attach to their coats and regerminate the Prairie 🌾my aunt kept saying there is a message in this Prairie!
Here's what I'm still taking away from that day, everywhere we walk in life we are tilling the soil and planting seeds and we will reap a harvest. If we sow kindness and friendship- we will reap kind friends. If we sow bitterness and unforgiveness- we will reap that back in our lives. We are just like the bison creating the world around us by where and who we walk with and what we plant with our words and actions.
I want to plant: forgiveness, grace, kindness, friendship, believing the best about people, patience, self control, discipline... because I want to reap them.
Our life is a harvest of our choices, thankfully the Lord is merciful and gracious because I mess up too 🌾thank you lord for the lesson from a Prairie! #oklahoma #prairiegirl #prairie #tallgrass #vintagedress #ethicalfashion #leatherbag #redhead #bison #encouragement #lifelessons #tulsablogger #mommyblogger
