Prayer 150: Never give up

Dear God

I thought those old irises in the corner of the garden were never going to bloom. So this year, I decided that if nothing happened (again) then I’d take them out and try something else more reliable. However, yesterday morning, I walked past the iris patch, and a small and delicate purple bloom caught my eye. One of them is about to flower and it looks as if it’s going to be absolutely beautiful when it’s fully out. Thank You then for flowers. And help me to learn to have patience and not to give up on things so easily, but to give them time enough to bloom and grow. Just as You do with us.
