bud to blossom

…What we long for: joy before death…
…What we know: we are more than blood — we are more than our hunger…

— from “Blossom” by Mary Oliver

24 For “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, 25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.” That word is the good news that was announced to you.
— 1 Peter 1:24-25

    Thank you, Susan! I spent considerable time trying to find the right match. If you read both straight through (skipping over the source info in between), I think they really flow together nicely. I’d like to incorporate more scripture in my posts in the future.
