Life has its way of blackening eyes.
Courage paints beauty where hardship resides;
Deep within tissues most damaged by pain,
Faith breeds the strength that will rise up again.
This lily variety is called ‘Black Eye’.
Have reblogged this as the imagery and words are beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Hey there, friend! Just thought of you the other day and here you are … with beautiful posts – as always!
Thanks Heidi! Life has been rather complex lately so I sure haven’t been around much at all. So nice to hear from you! I hope your summer is going well and that you are healthy and happy? My daughter graduated and is going to Bible School in Germany so today is the day to book flights and prep her health insurance and so on. Feeling sentimental… 😦
I am sending my oldest to college this weekend … I am feeling it, too!
Sigh. Good fodder for some sappy poetry, maybe? 🙂
