Now I Know It Works

My brother replanted a perennial from our parent’s garden three years ago to his own flower bed. It never bloomed for those three years.

My father passed away last Monday, on Tuesday morning there was a brilliant orange flower on this plant.

His funeral was Thursday. That afternoon while we were gathered in the yard all the petals fell off.

Many birds flew around the yard, but one of them repeatedly flew in and around the veranda mocking us.

There is a small shrub in front of our house it had looked rather withered. Came home tonight to find it the most brilliant green, almost neon.

Einstein postulated: “energy can neither be created nor destroyed” and if that is so my father’s energy has come full circle I have seen it manifested.

Now I know it works.
