Things Are Not Always What They Seem…

Things are not always as they appear. The beautiful hibiscus flower is actually fancy okra

“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”—L. Frank Baum, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”—

The beautiful hibiscus is actually only “fancy okra.” You see a beautiful flower at first glance, but if you compare flowers, buds, and seed buds, you will find the truth. One is food for the body, the other is food for the soul.

Words are like that. Be careful with what you say. Be even more careful with what you hear—and be extremely careful in sharing. Food for the soul is sometimes not particularly nourishing.

But, it’s all right to share a smile
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
