The fingers of God
The plant could not imagine how this would happen because right now life was unbearable.
"Yes," said the lark, "if you let faith speak, something will happen. Let faith speak!"
The rose was encouraged by the larkís song.
It looked out over the sea and noticed the waves rolling back and forth. It was as if they said, "Hold on, hold on yet a little while."
Heavy clouds of rain covered the sun but there were several bright spots where the sun rays came through. The lark flew up into the sky again.
"Itís Godís fingers you see there," it cried. "Thatís what you call the rays that shine through the clouds. Godís fingers will reach you. Donít give up."
The rose was hopeful again. It would not give up - it would give thanks for life despite the great pain in the top shoot.
"Thank you for every joy I have had in my life," it said quietly and looked across the sea to the setting sun.
