“But flowers feed our soul in a different way. They remind us of a God who creates beautiful things and takes notice of the tiniest detail”
― Tricia Goyer, A Christmas Gift for Rose

― Pearl Cleage, Some Things I Never Thought I’d Do

“Because somehow, the sun rises each day. Emerging from the horizon, brighter and more beautiful than the previous day. You’ll rise from the horizon too, learning to trust again. Learning to love again. Learning to heal. You’ll emerge so bright that the haters will be blinded. And darling, you’ll be the sun then, bright and beautiful, but they won’t be your sunflowers.” 
― Minahil
