Just a Seed

Prayer is more of a seed than a garden
It is a tiny nothing that is able to grow into something beautiful
It takes time and the result is not instant
Perhaps it is more of the knowing "it will be something beautiful one day"
that keeps us in delight and anticipation
like an awaited gift that will arrive when we least expect it
The quietness of my soul
and the focus of my heart
nourish it into a glorious revelation
and I need to remember the moment
that my prayer became a seed

thank you- for days when the prayers seem to be just words availing nothing, this picture and image are priceless.
