God's Bouquet

The following was on each table at the St. Elizabeth's Hospital Employee Banquet at The Cornhusker Hotel last week. I thought it worth passing along.

God's Bouquet
You must bloom where you are planted
In the garden we call life,
And bring some special beauty to
Each corner where there's strife.

Perhaps you're but a dandelion,
Wishing you were a rose,
Yet in this place of growing things,
You're the one God chose.

It's up to you to finish what
The Good Lord has begun,
By growing just the way you should
And face the rising sun.

There's room for you, if you but choose,
In a glorious array
Of beauty from God's garden, that
He'll add to His bouquet.

--Sister Mariam Barker, C.D.S.

Give to the Lord the glory due His name... -- 1 Chr. 16:29
