“To wait with openness and trust is an enormously radical attitude toward life. It is choosing to hope that something is happening for us that is far beyond our own imaginings. It is giving up control over our future and letting God define our life.” Henri Nouwen

My garden calls me to remember much about waiting with openness and trust – to choose hope.  All around me are signs of beginnings and growth.  Not all happen when I predict.  Many don’t develop on the same time-table as previously experienced.  But if I am attentive, the astonishing beauty and meaning is indeed beyond my own imagining.

    • Thank you for reading and commenting, Sonja. I love that hymn, too. I almost “waited” until I had a flower photo to add to the grouping, but this seemed to speak to what we so often experience…mystery, and waiting with expectation. Both Easter and Advent!
