Generosity in quotes: Natalie Sleeth

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree;

In cocoons, a hidden promise; butterflies will soon be free.

In the cold and snow of winter there’s a spring that waits to be,

Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

There’s a song in ev’ry silence, seeking words and melody.

There’s a dawn in ev’ry darkness, bringing hope to you and me.

From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery,

Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity;

In our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity.

In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory,

Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

Natalie SleethNatalie Sleeth, an American composer, a hymn titled “In the Bulb There is a Flower” from Hymnal, A Worship Book, Number 614

    Why do we refuse to count on what “God alone can see”? Today in our toxic corporate environment your post by Ms. Sleeth brings profound encouragement which resonates with the same sentiments brokered through other unwitting ‘agents’ of God’s heart for us.
    We are grateful!
