Eternity In A RoseBud




So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,
 but on what is unseen. 
For what is seen is temporary, 
but what is unseen is eternal.
1 Corinthians 4:18





Lord, 
give me an open heart 
to find You everywhere,
 to glimpse the heaven 
enfolded in a bud, 
and to experience 
eternity 
in the smallest 
act of love.

~Mother Theresa
