A Lily of course!

As you may have guessed my mystery bud (see June 15 blog) was in fact a Lily! It surely did not spring from any seed I planted. And now I recall there was a birthday lily last fall and when it dropped its bloom and began to decline it was tossed, pot and all, out the backdoor of course. Well, actually it was set on the
don't-know-where-to-put-this table and in the course of life passing tumbled to its resting place beside the steps--forgotten all the winter long...

And now through no effort on my part it has bloomed--a brilliant surprise. My role was just to plunk it in a sunny spot and watch. Only God can make a lily bloom, or a life come into flower...Sometimes the best thing I can do is step aside and watch--be still and know that He is God. And when the lily blooms, the glory is all His.
