I found this pretty thing springing up out of the ground today in my yard. It made me think about a poem I once read.
What do the flowers buds pushing up from the broken earth say about you?
We break and grow.
I have found this to be true in my own life. The hard things that have left me feeling broken have given me a deeper understanding in time. Growing seeds that later turn into pure beauty like this flower, can be painful. It is the pain part that has given me a deeper mercy and love for the ones around me. Making me understand we are meant to help each other and that is what growing in love together is!
