Eve of Womanhood

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook, and I thought that I had to share it with you guys. :) It is a story about purity.

A mother and her daughter were walking up a hill and talking. Her daughter was about 21 and was complaining about how she is tired of waiting for Gods best. She kept on talking about putting things in her own hands and finding Mr. Right for herself. He mother just nodded and listened. When they got to the top of the hill her mother stopped ...and looked down at a lovely bush of roses. She said to her daughter, "Look, how beautiful the roses are this year. But look, a late bloomer. I think it shall be the prettiest of all. But you know, I really don't want to wait so, why don't we peel back the petals and just have a look." The daughter knowing that her mom would never do this looked at her in disbelief and said, "Mother, you know if I do this it will harm the rose and it won't be as beautiful as it would be if you had waited for it to bloom." But her mother persisted, "Oh but just pulling one petal back won't harm anything." Again the daughter was shocked, "It will harm everything!!! The flower isn't ready to bloom." Her mother nodded and smiled wisely, "exactly, so daughter, do not start pulling back your petals until God is ready for you." Girls, you are each such a beautiful rose. Delicate and full of love. Do not bring down you standards, stay strong in the Lord for he knows what is good. He will bring his best for you on his timing, not yours for his is the best timing.
