Beauty And The Bee

Bees depend on the beauty of flowers, and on their supply of pollen
and nectar. Without it, they would hardly survive.  
During today, stop. Take a deep breath. Observe the details of a flower, a smile, or a bee. Whisper a prayer. That moment has the ability to transform fearful or apprehensive thoughts into surviving moments of peace, strength, wisdom, hope, and beauty.   
For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope”. ~ Jeremiah 29:11
