A close-up

Lord, grant me the strength of the plant that pushes up between the paving slabs and blossoms in the most unlikely of places. 

There are times where it feels like there is very little soil to grow in; where it feels like a struggle to push on through. Those are the times where you have to remind yourself of those flowers that come up through cracks in the concrete or between bricks in a wall. 

I want that resilience. 
That determination to blossom no matter what.
But it's not in me.
I need help.

(And yes, I am well aware that I actually wrote 'most unlikeliest'. Duh! An oops moment that I am having to live with...)

And yes, it is so painstaking to blossom (us) and to blossom (outside) and to see the metaphors of the weeds that take place in both places. Weeds are beautiful and weeds are ugly...we get to choose. We rip them out or we leave them. We do both. Our choice depending on how they affect us and you have done just that. I might borrow what you have done, if that is OK. I think it is, as I said, STELLAR!!!! Lovies, Samara
