Right outside our front door, there are brick steps that lead up to it. I walk up and down those steps so many times in a day; and of course all of those daily steps add up to many, many more steps when you take an entire summer into account. This summer, each time I walked up the steps, I kept my eye on a little cosmos that decided to plant itself right in the middle of them. Early in the summer I heard someone mention pulling it up ... but no one ever did. I haven't watered it, or fertilized it, just watched it. And that little flower has been determined to grow without any humanly help. Finally, it reached its goal .... and it is only about three inches high. This tiny flower is so sweet, blooming ever so brightly. And it just makes me smile, knowing that it is only there because of God's hand.
