A plain and simple Rosebud,
A flower of God's design.
I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret to unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
The flower that God opens so easily,
In my hands would fade and die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
A flower of God's design,
Then how can I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?
The solution is rather simple,
Trust God every moment, every day,
And look to Him in guidance
With each step along the way.
For the pathway that lies before me
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
Trusting that He'll unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose . . .
