To see a world in a grain of sand
And a Heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
- William Blake
Lord, help me to grow as the wildflowers grow
be it a meadow or a crack in cement.
Despite the terrain, be it good or bad,
let me know I am there by intent.
Instead of my sadly complaining within
regarding life's rough terrain,
May my face, too, look upward to you
through seasons of drought and rain.
Help me to bloom as the wildflowers bloom,
regardless of where I am placed;
wherever the spot You plant me, Lord,
let the air there be sweet with Your grace.
Someday a tired pilgrim may stop to rest
from carrying his heavy load
And thank my Creator for placing me there
to brighten that spot in life's road.
~ Kitty Chappell
A weed is but an unloved flower. ~Ella Wheeler Wilcox
I learn more about God
From weeds than from roses;
Through the smallest chink of hope
In the absolute of concrete....
Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. ~A.A. Milne
What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
P.S: I do believe everything the Creator put on the planet has value.
There are some …..the value of which is not understood…. yet.
Every weed I see is incredibly unique and beautiful….and each one of them has taught me resilience.
