Shazbot!We live out in the middle of nowhere, so it wasn't like he could walk to the nearest gas station. Nor were the chances good that someone would drive by and give him a lift. He had every right to be frustrated and angry. Yet, when I called he simply said it was a lovely evening for a walk. Not only that, but when he finally got home, he gave me these lovely flowers that he picked from the side of the road.
To the moon Alice!
I must choose how I want to live my life!
Bloom where you are planted
Are you familiar with this expression? It comes from a story about a little flower planted in the King's palace -
"Oh king," she said, "I know I'm little, and not many people notice me, but one day I realized that if you planted me here, you must have had a good reason. So, your majesty, I've determined to be the best little flower I can be!"
So then, whatever you desire that others would do to and for you, even so do also to and for them, for this is (sums up) the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12
