Always remember how beautiful your spirit is! ~Cody S.O. Haynes~

A tiny seed of almost nothing, planted in the ground
Soil and sunlight surrounds it all around
It was given a small portion of scriptures and prayer
But also given this sliver of hope-a second helping of love
I believe it will grow to be a beautiful and healthy flower
I’m planting a seed of faith
Given more scriptures and prayer each day- my faith is gradually increasing
Thinking of how proud I will be makes the work even more enticing
I’m planting a seed of faith
The seed is a stem now. Little leaves sprout everywhere
Hope, patience, and love are as the keys
But no matter how hard I try, it is faith I must cease
By three inches now, it’s growing taller
But my faith, I’m afraid, is getting smaller
It has stopped growing. It is wilting
I WILL plant a seed of faith
I pray. I study the scriptures. It reaches four more inches with more leaves too
It grows strong again
I am planting a seed of faith
A week goes by with the same routine
I keep praying. I keep reading scriptures
I smile with glory as it grows into a bud
Far too soon, the bud is no longer a bud
But a radiant, full-bloomed, beautiful rose
My faith has bloomed
I have planted a seed of faith
