When people approached Corrie Ten Boom and gave her a compliment like, "Corrie, that was a great message!" or "Corrie, that was so brave!" according to Cliff Barrows, Corrie said, "I take each remark as if it were a flower. At the end of each day, I lift up the bouquet of flowers I have gathered throughout the day, and say, "Here you are, Lord. It's all Yours." At the end of a tribute to her one day in Denver, Colorado; after an evening full of emotional memories and looking back over a very full eighty-six years, she was presented with a large bouquet of yellow roses. As the crowd stood to applaud her, she lifted the bouquet to the Lord, and Barrow says, "I just knew she was saying to Him, 'Lord Jesus, this is Yours'." NOTE: Where privacy is warranted, I have just used initials.
Lord Jesus, these are yours!
