bloom where you are planted
Like everything that is beautiful, the flower gives pleasure by being seen, and we should Glorify the Creator by looking at and enjoying it’s beauty.
Saint Clement of Alexandria
Those planted in the house of the Lord Shall blossom forth in the courts of our God; They shall still be increased in a rich old age, And shall be prospering So as to proclaim, “The Lord my God is upright, And there is no wrongdoing in Him.”
