I learn something about this plant whose fine accomplishment has been kept for 80 years.
Nobody knows why it waited so long. Nobody can explain the particular timing of it. It's a mystery.
All I can think about is the truth that our gifts and offerings to the world will keep until the right time--when they're needed.
Until then, we live in the mystery of it and the comfort that we can save all our offerings until they're wanted.
They will keep.

I'm so sore I could just curl up in a ball and never move again. Muscles that I never used have been thoroughly used.
I remember this morning that when you're building muscles and getting fit, the sore feeling means one is getting stronger. It's really the only way to grow.
Oh, glorious pain! This is how to move into strength and then, eventually, into the freedom to run.
