LISTEN FOR YOUR MUSIC--DANCE!—

AND

LEAVE YOUR MARK!

 

During the 2007 C.A.M.P. we had a beautiful special service called:  

 

“Come and Leave Your Mark.”

 

I think that service may have left its own mark.

 

Well, we all do leave our mark.

 

It would be great if that mark were a thing of beauty.

 

 

In my yard the daffodils are blooming. Maybe hundreds of them!

 

( But I did not plant them.)

 

These daffodils are probably 75 years old!

 

Also

 

At the end of our road, there was an old historic hotel.

 

A slice of early Ohio life. The present owners of the property tore it down! 

 

But they could not tear down the daffodils!

Driving past it this week, I noticed a whole gully full of daffodils. (Possibly washed away there when the old hotel was torn down.)

 

And there they bloom, Bringing beauty for all to see!

 

Probably 125 years after they were planted!

 

I doubt if who ever planted them all those years ago ever dreamed that we  would still be enjoying them all these many years later.

 

 

 

In this Morning Watch, I urge you to:

 

PLANT SOME DAFFODILS!

 

(Yes, actually  perhaps)-- but what I mean is-- Leave your mark--

 

and make it a mark of beauty!

 

This indeed will happen if you listen for YOUR music...

 

Find your special place in the world.

 

And then live it fully (with God’s Help!)

 

Leave your Mark.

Plant some daffodils.

Happy Springtime, all!
