Thank You Father!

June 17, 2017

To an impatient gardener

a slowly blooming seed

is a frustration!

But the Master Gardener

stays very near

and nourishes with food,

encouragement,

and love

and He is filled with joy

when the blossom comes to life!

Hope Among Weeds and Thorns

January 30, 2013

Digital Camera

When the garden is filled with weeds

Yet one stubborn flower

Finds the strength to grow,

Am I to frown

Because it is the only one?

Is it not a very welcomed blessing?

Surely its beauty

Nourishes my hungry soul

Giving me the strength

To tackle the overgrowth

Of opposition

Not unlike the single

Blooming rose

Basking in the midst

Of thorns;

Hope

Of a coming new season!
