Little Flower

“Even now I know it: yes, all my hopes will be fulfilled… yes… the Lord will work wonders for me which will surpass infinitely my immeasurable desires.” (St. Thérèse of Lisieux – VII Letter to Mother Agnes of Jesus)

Even the tiniest little flowers make me happy as they try to bloom and survive during the autumn season. Flowers are wonderful, St. Thérèse (also known as the “little flower”) is wonderful, and despite having its fair share of sucky moments, life is wonderful!  

(“St. Therese loved nature, and often used the imagery of nature to explain how the Divine Presence is everywhere, and how everything is connected in God’s loving care and arms. Thérèse saw herself as “the Little Flower of Jesus” because she was just like the simple wild flowers in forests and fields, unnoticed by the greater population, yet growing and giving glory to God. Therese did not see herself as a brilliant rose or an elegant lily, by simply as a small wildflower. This is how she understood herself before the Lord – simple and hidden, but blooming where God had planted her.” – littleflower.org)
