Young, still growing, still learning, still gaining strength. We call it a bud, but it is still a flower.
It guards itself until the day God whispers reaches it though natures script.
Then, petal by petal, it opens. I wonder…
Does it hurt? Is there relief? Are there such things as introverted or extroverted flowers? Either way, we wait in anticipation for them to be ready.
People are a lot like buds…
Are you ready? Even if you’re not, you are still beautiful.
