This song is so classic to me but every time i listen to it, it encourage me & makes me cry. I even 
sang it myself & recorded a video. The lyrics goes: 

Little flowers never worry
When the wind begins to blow.
And they never, never cry
When the rain begins to fall.

Oh, it's wet and oh so cold, 
Soon the sun will shine again.
Then they'll smile unto the world, 
For their beauty to behold.

When the clouds begin to gather
And the wind begins to blow, 
Little flowers don't complain, 
Though they're tossing to and fro.

Oh, I guess they've learned the secret, 
They don't fret because they know, 
If it never, never rained, 
Then they'd never, never grow.

So, let it rain, let it rain, let it pour, 
Little trouble keep on knocking at my door, 
If we'll learn the right from wrong, 
It will help to make us strong.

Lord, please help us learn the secret, 
Even little flowers know, 
If it never, never rains
Then we'll never, never grow.

My version

When I woke up, I decided to grab my dried roses & borrowed tanya's tea cup. Yes, I saved them. 
Monday, that day... when we got to pastor's house, I asked my husband if he knows where he kept 
my coffee because he was the one that grabbed all the groceries. He forgot it in our flat. So I begged 
him to go back there. So we went back to grab it. We only had few minutes left. Jersey city Website
announced that we have to be inside the house at exactly 2pm. So we're so in a hurry! For some 
reason, out of many important items in our flat, i grabbed the roses. It was funny but I didn't know 
why I had to grab it. I did it for no reason. But now I'm just so amazed I'm writing about it with a
smile. It makes so much sense now. It's a good memory for me. It reminded me to listen to the 
song again. 

 after listening to it again, It felt like I woke up in a great place. Hope activated. Faith became strong.

Me & Nate had an awesome breakfast this morning. I told him how much I love him & he goes,
 "Baby, this is our first trial together" and my heart cried. He gave me hug me with so much emotion.

We are thankful we have a place to stay & food to eat. It's not a fancy food but it's such a BIG
blessing especially we all know that there's many people out there that doesn't have anything to
eat. Bread & eggs, my favorite & it will never get old.

I was ready to write a blog earlier. It took so long because I've been working on many different things. 

I was also working on making my own scarf. Yes yes.. I saved them too! I grabbed it without a doubt!
