Yesterday it was a speck of green;
Today, a proud shoot
pushes through the spring loam.
After winter’s rest,
the bulb seeks the light.
No hesitancy in its pursuit,
visible to all, it grows toward its goal –
The plant is my challenge
to make my quest of light
my growth as visible,
and my goal as beautiful.
II Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
