graceful words...

My garden
is full of weeds, insects,
showing signs of neglect and the heat.

This life, also, is full of
trials, sin, discouragment and weariness.

I look for ( and need) hope , mercy and grace.

The beauty is there,
Waiting to be found.
If we look for it.

A lone Sonia Rykel rose,
one of my favorites,
with the most heavenly fragrance .

Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me in your paths;
guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.

Your post was uplifting and inspired me today. There is always beauty waiting to be found, and you certainly found it in that delicate, gorgeous rose. Thank you for the reminder, and another lovely post.
