Sometimes I feel as tightly wound as this rose bud. I feel stuck between "what is" and the "what may be" of this world, longing for peace. ------G. Hill

We like things to manifest right away, and they may not. Many times, we’re just planting a seed and we don’t know exactly when it will come to fruition. ------Sharon Salzberg
Then, smiling in their easy way, the unstoppable SunPatiens, from their confidant perch, seemed to say, "Look at me and value what is; trust in what will be. What is promised is already in motion." (SunPatiens are very wise.) ------G. Hill
Fruition in Time. . .
The fruition of beauty is no chance of hit or miss… it is inevitable as rain, as life itself. ----- Walt Whitman
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Remember, what we see in front of us might not be the end of the story. ------ Sharon Salzberg
Peace, I leave with you, my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. -----John 14:27
