The Tenderness of a Flower

Dear Lord,


You created this world with such beauty, and although there are thousands of different flowers on the planet, each one is different from the other. Each of them was created with different texture, shape, size and color, but they all make this world a wonderful spectacle of admiration. In the same way I know that we were created, different from each other, but all made with tenderness and love. Just as the flower is delicate, so my soul must reflect the softness and nobility of Your heart. Help me, to appreciate the beautiful colours, to observe the varied nuances that life brings and to enjoy the pleasant aroma that comes down from heaven to earth as a touch of Your goodness.


“As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth…” Psalm 103:15
