JUST A THOUGHT: Beauty First
Listen. I learned something this morning.
Fruit comes from flowers. Do you see?
Results come from joy and beauty first.
You don’t hammer seeds in the ground and wait for breakfast.
The important step is in-between.
You eagerly plant ten seeds or a thousand.
Then the seeds, quietly and invisibly, in comfort and heat
drowning and dryness, well, the seeds either die or open up.
If in their own time they graciously come up, open up for you
what do they do first? They bloom!
“Beauty first!” they shout. “Beauty first!” then breakfast.
