Letting Go...



My daughter bought me this potted plant (I have yet to id this one).

The lady selling plants told us that once all buds are open, we have to cut the flowers so we'll see more blooms. Ouch!

Sacrifice... letting go.... these words came to mind.

Yesterday, all buds were open and so flowers were snipped off their stems.

"Cast your bread upon the waters,
  for after many days you will find it again."
Ecclesiastes 11:1


"The only things we can keep are the things we freely give to God.
What we try to keep for ourselves is just what we are sure to lose."
C.S. Lewis
