Sacred Simplicity

**********************

 Some flowers bloom without our aid

as sacred elegance in the wild

Their seeds cast by nature’s hand

with the simplicity of a child

~

No fanfare or grand scheme designed

just a flight on wings and wind

as capsules of potential descend

upon the earth who takes them in

~

The Creator esteems such humble ways

and childlikeness a desirable trait

in order for true righteousness to be sown

in all matters of our faith.

These wildflowers are from the hike my husband and I took in Paradise Meadows.

Children so easily live in the moment and trust Providence for the future.

The potential for greatness is found in childlike faith.

Our Creator can accomplish much when we “let go and let God.”

I have so much to let go of ; yet , even in this God begins and completes the good work.

I just need to believe.

  2. That yellow flower seemed to jump right off the screen at me. So beautiful. And wouldn’t it be wonderful to be like little children and always be able to enjoy each moment without the intrusion of worry about what tomorrow might bring. I appreciate the inspiration your site always brings me. Thank you.

  3. Your poem was just perfect, Wendy .. .and then the flower photos and thoughts with them put this over the top with simple beauty and joy. I really looked when you talked about child like faith. Having a ‘forever child’ with me gives me great opportunity to learn these beautiful lessons of childlikeness. 😀 Thank you and God bless you always!

    1. Thank you, Debbie, for such a lovely comment. I remember a “forever child” making the most intriguing remarks at a church service years ago, and I found myself listening extra closely and being blessed for it. Blessings dear friend.

  4. All true. Thrilling how close-ups of flowers give such an amazing perspective, like seeing them again for the first time. When I first started doing that my farmer/gardener Mother had difficulty identifying a few of them. Again, amazing!

    1. Thank you! I love macro photography for that very reason. When Darwin came up with his theory, it was before we knew just how complex living things are. Who put all that information in the nucleus? 🙂

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
