Keep Me Focused On The Purpose

Photography, Praise

While walking in my yard yesterday and I noticed an amaryllis bulb that had grown and produced a  strong stem with a richly colored bud.

Single Amaryllis Bulb Focused on Its Purpose

 

I knew it was  getting ready to open into a beautiful amaryllis flower. This is the first year for one stem to grow by itself. There are many more bulbs at the same spot that have not grown yet.  I was fascinated by this one amaryllis fulfilling its purpose, all alone, yet strong and beautiful. Hence the poem below:

 

focused on the purpose

 

Job 14:1-2
Man born of woman
is short of days and full of trouble.
He blossoms like a flower, then withers;
he flees like a shadow and does not last.
