365 Days of Colour - Flower of the Day 85

Reflection
Get rid of the clutter

Quote
When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blaming, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.
... Thich Nhat Hanh

Scripture
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul...Psalm 23:1-3
