Ending Well...

I ran across this on the back of a book I read this week...I had seen it before, but sometimes it escapes me. I hope it encourages you to have a wonderful weekend and remember your journey is about the little steps along the way...


"And the Day Came When the Risk to Remain Tight in a Bud Was More Painful Than the Risk It Took to Bloom"

Brief and to the point on this Friday...I'm hoping that I will open up and bloom...very soon!

I really like that. I'm still working on the hyacinth in me that I posted about early on. I find myself blooming some days, and other days wanting to pull the covering back over the top and stay inside.

You know..that really hit me. It hit a nerve. It's like you verbalized exactly how I am feeling about myself right now. For me, at this very moment, being tight in a bud is killing me.

Wow...

You have confused me...
"hoping that I will open up and bloom...very soon."???

hmmmm, well, from the very small, alice-in-wonderland-doll-house-sized window of time I have "known" you...I HAVE to say that you have blooms ALL OVER you!

You may have some buds growing and getting ready to burst but that's new growth sister, and necessary for continued life.

You are one whopping Spring blooming masterpiece!

What else could you possibly be? God creates only beautiful, inspiring, awe-some, masterpieces...

What a profound statement. I think it describes where I am in my Christian walk today. Another analogy I have heard it likened to is birthing pains. Whatever it is, I'm ready for it to come forth!
