Take Time to Smell the Flower By Brenda Drake



Take Time to Smell the Flower


Take time to smell the flower; enjoy the sunny day
See the beauty that surrounds you portrayed.
Make the effort to smile, sing that happy song.
Tell your friends and neighbors to whom you belong.
Listen to the one that speaks, listen to his cry.
Be sensitive to another’s hurt, and their need supply.
Look at tomorrow through eyes of today.
Do not put off things to another day.
If you dwell in yesterday’s sunshine or yesterday’s rain,
It can spoil today’s joy and can cause you inner pain.
Let love flow, wise words speak.
You become stronger when you assist the weak.
Trust your life into God’s care while upon the earth.
He will prosper your soul and give you rebirth.
Alive to the Spirit, alive to His touch,
Alive to His desires and alive to His love.
The flowers are even more fragrant; their splendor intensifies,
For you are one with the Creator – in you, He is alive.
A rose’s aroma though sweet is not as sweet to God above
As the thankful child of God that enjoys the Father’s love.

I John 5:12
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
