Bloom Where You're Planted

I'm sure just about every one of us can relate to these words from author Barbara Johnson. 

Just remember, every flower that ever bloomed had to go through a whole lot of dirt to get there. ~ Barbara Johnson

Friends, there is Hope on the other side of the dirt you're in the midst of.  Bloom where you are planted.




For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.
Isaiah 61:11

Have a blessed day.

That is a great quote and daisies are my favourite flower. They always look so hopeful.
