We know someone who tends the flower of life with the diligence that the gardener bestows on his prized plants. The life unfolds to reveal the beauty of living.
We all have that acquaintance who picks the flower of life to pieces.
Whether there be productivity and loveliness, or whether there be desiccation and devastation is a matter of the choices one makes as he lives his life.
The fear of the is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. --Proverbs 1:7
