Life is a Flower; We are the Bloom

One day you will look back and see that all along, you were blooming.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk to blossom.

Let My Bud Be a Crown
Budding Prayer 

Dear God, 
You know what I can be
And what longs to be free
From fears--- to be torn down
My buds to be a crown
Of sweet generosity.
Warm my heart 
So I can bloom.
My life a drop 
Of sweet perfume.

If every flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.

Life runs the long distance race.
The years go at rapid pace,
Tho' our morn fades to afternoon,
My soul is a forever bloom.

My Soul A Forever Bloom
As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow.

The purpose of life is not to find perfect happiness. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
