Today's Gift #essentialsofrecovery

Deep in their roots all flowers keep the light

—Theodore Roethke

All flowers begin with the potential to grow and blossom. Yet in winter, perennial flowers are buried under the snow. Inside the dark earth, they are patiently waiting for their time to bloom. For the flowers, faith is believing that spring will return. It is carrying the light of summer deep in their roots so that even in times of cold and dark, there is hope that they will bloom again.

When spring does return, they shoot out of the ground and burst into blossom. In times of light, they drink it deep into their roots – deep enough to sustain them through the next season of darkness. We can do the same, keeping the memory of good times deep within us, so that when we’re feeling low, it will keep our faith in the happy future strong.
