Strewing Flowers

Strewing Flowers

(Melody: “Oui, je le crois”)

Jesus, my only Love, how I love to strew Flowers
Each evening at the foot of your Crucifix!…
In unpetalling the springtime rose for you,
I would like to dry your tears……

Strewing Flowers is offering you as first fruits
My slightest sighs, my greatest sufferings.
My sorrows and my joys, my little sacrifices,
Those are my flowers!…….

Lord, my soul is in love with your beauty.
I want to swander my perfumes and my flowers on you.
In strewing them for you on the wings of the breeze,
I would like to inflame hearts!…….

Strewing flowers, Jesus, is my weapon
When I want to fight to save sinners.
The victory is mine…I always disarm you
With my flowers!!!…

The flower petals, caressing your Face,
Tell you that my heart is yours forever.
You understand the language of my unpetalled rose,
And you smile at my love.

Strewing Flowers, repeating your praise,
That is my delight in this valley of tears.
Soon I shall go to Heaven with the little angels
To strew Flowers!…

 

This was written by St. Therese of Lisieux. I recieved a book from a very good friend of our family of her poetry, since she is one of my Confirmation saints. I thought this poem was beautiful and such an example for us all. Blessings!

Audrey Hepburn’s Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.

As your grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty in a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

 

 

It think that is just beautiful.
