Spanish Moss is common in the southern United States.

Oak trees draped with hanging moss paint a picture of peace and tranquility.
Evoke images of Southern belles, all afternoon picnics, and croquet games.
Mint Juleps optional.
Spanish moss is very beautiful…
but it grows in nooks and crevices of the weakest branches of majestic hundred year old trees.
Blocks the sunlight from feeding the leaves that surround it.
It does not kill, but yes, further weakens.
Our minds can become full with random thoughts, distracting thoughts, busy thoughts, purposeless thoughts, empty thoughts…

Our minds become weak with the heaviness of them.
Thoughts drape up on thoughts shutting out the light from above that guides us and sustains us.
Begin to weaken our will, our walk.
Let not the moss grow in weakened areas of the mind.
Relax, slow down, rest…

Mint Julep optional!
Let the light of Godly, purposeful, affirming thoughts fill your mind.
Anything else is mere moss.
A light filled mind is a PEACE filled mind.
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you. ” Phil 4: 8-9
