The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again.
As I sit here and type, sometimes the words Ive written seem as though Im reading someone elses life when in reality, that life is – Mine! The only way I can explain any of it is – Ive come this far by the grace of God. He has protected me. Kept His distance from me to draw me closer to Him. Continues to love and guide me, even though I feel like I dont deserve it sometimes.
However, He reminds me that I AM a child of God
Inspite of all my imperfection.
In my failures, there is success
In my disappointments, there is hope
