A Lesson From Nature

Grief can be exhausting and summer very busy. So this weekend--may we set aside a few minutes for rest and surrendering to God's will, just like a flower lifts its blossom to the sun.

He sendeth sun, he sendeth shower,
Alike they're needful to the flower;
And joys and tears alike are sent
To give the soul fit nourishment.
As come to me of cloud or sun,
Father! Thy will, not mine, be done.

--Sarah Fuller Flower Adams (1805-1848)

    I hope everyone can take some rest in Him time this weekend.

    Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

    Have a good weekend! ♥


    I love the poem at the end. ♥
