Can I bring you flowers?

God, I want to please You today
How can I make you proud of me?
I love you a lot Lord... I love you so much
I wish I could bring you flowers...
...Can I bring You flowers...?
...maybe I'll wait for Valentine's Day
I'm broke Lord... SO, Valentines Day then...
.
..Show me what I can give to my brothers and
sisters to let them see more of Your love...
maybe i'll bring them flowers too...
....again...Valentines Day....
and what a great day to just love everyone...
I'll love them with Your love God 
...and with flowers... 
everyone will be my Valentine
even you Oh God...

But what about today....?
...today Lord ...
...What about today.....?
Ah... your instant inward flow...
...it tells me to just love everyone today
....and love You today....
 ...I can afford that...  

...but not flowers...
 

So, today I will love everyone with Your love God... 
and on Valentine's day also with roses....
I'll bring you roses too Lord
I hope it makes you proud of me...
I'm proud of You....
I love You God
Amen
