To Live Like an Iris
In our front yard we have one single iris. It blossoms in the Spring, lasts for a few days, and then dies. It does one very simple, very beautiful thing once each year. Sometimes this iris really speaks to me. So often I feel pressured to volunteer at several places or join various organizations. But, usually, I feel called to be more like an iris ... to focus on one or two things in life, but to try to do them really well.
You have been told what is good:
Only to do justice and to love goodness,
and to walk humbly with your God.
~ Micah 6:8
