Family Flowers Bloom

(Prayer/poem originally written in March of 2017)

These flowers were growing in our yard and by our church.
God, bless
the Family Flowers
to stretch and to bloom

this springtime
of Lent
filled with sweetest perfume

of Sacrifice!
Praise!

for Harvest make room!

by birthing in shadows 
Christ's Light from the Womb

of our Mother's dear heart
a lamp burning still

Her Flame to outlast
any soul's winter chill

so that come what may
with sun's ray shine to set

no fickle vine thrive
nor bad fruit beset

our Family Flowers
from blooming in Time

to prosper the Plans 
of God's Kingdom divine! Amen.
Inspired by 
Luke 8:21 "But he said to them, "My mother and my brethren are those who hear the word of God and do it."
