Quickie Quote: Honest Humility

 “If every flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.” St. Thérèse of Lisieux

On this Lenten Wednesday, here’s a quote about humility (the good kind)…

“If a flower could speak, it seems to me that it would tell us quite simply all that God has done for it, without hiding any of its gifts. It would not, under the pretext of humility, say that it was not pretty, or that it had not a sweet scent, that the sun had withered its petals, or the storm bruised its stem, if it knew that such were not the case.”  St. Thérèse of Lisieux

grace, peace & honest humility

  2. Ah, I love this! Beautiful quote.
    Humility doesn’t mean we can’t speak and testify about the wonders and goodness of God.
