Grand Hands

“There comes a time when you realize that your life is no longer in any man’s hands. Not in your parents, or your siblings, or friends, not in yours, but in the hand of God who does as He wills. And then you stop fighting and kicking against the pricks. You gain that smoother Iife of peace, and surrender. Then all you can say is:

“Not my will Lord, but yours be done.”

The Faces of Spring

“Whenever spring comes, Hope springs up alongside these flowers.

Every flower unique in its own way. Sharing its beauty with the world. As if to say ‘Cheer up. Spring is here!”

As the trees come alive with flushes of greens, yellows, and reds, my spirit comes alive with vigour.

With spring comes a new peace and tranquility.

With it comes a heart of gratutude for all that God has made.
