For a season

it beautifully blooms

because that’s what it was designed to do

And we can all enjoy the beauty

Then…the blooms fade

and the work begins

For flowers weren’t just made to bloom and be beautiful

They have a purpose

Yes, the flower’s work is to make seeds

Seeds that will be planted,

Seeds that will spread and grow and impact their little space.

and impact their world

and one day, bear flowers

that bloom beautifully

Flowers that will be admired and shared and enjoyed

in times and places which are far beyond that of the little blooms that I enjoyed today

simple little legacy of a flower…kind of reminds me of being a mom.

Bloom on precious mommas…

keep sowing and watering the seeds of character and hope and love for the Lord

in your children,

asking God to grow them up in His Ways

You never know where or when or how those little blooms will show up

and impact their world

Beautifully…

“I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.”

I Corinthians 3:6
