Silly Lily or Why, Indeed?



"Silly lily", said Victoria. "Why do you pull away from the very thing that gives you life?" Yes, why indeed?
(we are watching with interest, the lily that began as a tall, straight stem. The stem keeps curling. It pulled the flower down to the jar rim then continued to curl up, up...)




Why do we stray and pull away
Within temptation, grief and strife
Choosing to trust the gods of dust
Instead of He who gives us life?

Janet~

John 1:4
In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

  2. Hi Jen, You're welcome:)I think Victoria's casual remark struck me in the way it did because I too needed the reminder; God is good(())
