The Lovely Flower

Kindness is a lovely flower
One cannot force its seed
But there is nothing like the power
Of kindness touching need

Kindness is a lovely bloom
It needs no pot or bowl
Its fragrance fills the dreary room
And cheers the down-cast soul

Kindness is a stunning rose
Of pure and humble beauty
Its root in selfless visage grows
And never out of duty

Kindness is a lovely flower
All can afford its splendor
In every season, every hour
Its bloom is fair and tender


)Be kind to one another, tenderhearted,forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephes. 4:32

First I have to mention your beautiful coneflowers! I love them against the weathered wood :)

I enjoyed reading the similarities between flowers and kindness. The last verse is so true... we can all afford to be kind, everyday :)

Love that verse from Ephesians... I used it in my 2nd blog post, "An Unfortunate Pan of Brownies."

It's raining and cold here today ~ hope you're fairing better up north :)

Thank-you Megan...I wish these were my cone flowers but they are my friends...or were, She told me that the old barn and flower bed are going, so I took some pictures.All her plants looked gorgeous against the weathered barn-board!

I like this verse too. I think it is one of the first verses I memorized as a child.

We are waiting for the rain to is gray and damp.

This is why we photograph flowers isn't it?...our winter gardens~

Short, cute and really good. Really nice. "...nothing like the power of kindness touching need." That's powerful.
