What an amazing transformation this small white flower underwent. In just a few short weeks the delicate petal became a gorgeous fruit.
Considering this small miracle I reflect on how we as humans are transformed as well. We are given the gift of life with no clear knowledge of where that life will take us. Certainly we make plans. We have our dreams. Some of us may achieve our hopes...others will find that their paths take them to places they never planned.
Having attended several graduation parties this past month. I reflected on what lies ahead for these new graduates. Where will life take them? What will be their challenges? Perhaps they will differ a bit from ours. Still the basic human need remains the same. To love and be loved. Everything else is just what's in between.
Love is the tool that transforms. It can heal a hurt. It can mend a broken relationship. It can right a wrong. Love can change all things. It did over two thousand years ago... It still is today.
Think I will go transform these berries into a pie - thanks for stopping by. Have a Blessed week!
