Sunday Night Reflections

Celebrate Vision
One spring day, Carolyn Edwards drove her mother up a twisting mountain road. Suddenly, her mother saw what Carolyn brought her to see. As far as the eye could see stretched a sea of red tulips, yellow daffodils, and purple hyacinths. She was speechless. "Who did this?" she gasped. A sign next to a small cottage explained, "What was done was done by one woman, one flower at a time, starting in 1958." "Think of it," her mother said, "One person with a vision turned drabness into beauty. It took fourty years, but she did it."  Imagine what I could do, if I had a vision and worked at it a little bit each day.

Taken from "Celebration of Hope."
Mark Link, S.J


Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Proverbs 29:18
