some flowers bloom within days of planting
others not for years—or with stunted timing
only God ordains the beauty of His creations
manifested in different ways and formations

early ‘bloomers’ will habitually frustrate us
discouraged- Gods plans remain anonymous
we grow impatient with the changing seasons
deliberating His timing to reveal His reasons

ignoring valuable lessons of diverse planets flora
some seem to flourish, while others become poorer
several live decades, sadly a few for mere minutes
does God have his hand on us all without any limits?

assuming, concluding-- all reasons for His delay
possibly-- perhaps sin may be leading few astray
persistent, crafting global testimony to His glory
by no means leaving late bloomers out of His story

    Very subtle way to tell the story of God's redeeming love..Great testimony of His faith..God is so merciful to give us chance after chance to mature and become the person that he wants us to be..I am glad that I chose this one this morning ....Sara

    You had my brain going a mile a minute here. Plant the seeds, water them slowly, give them light, let them grow...they will overcome any trials. Much to ponder here. Wonderful job, Kim!
