I was recently in Seattle visiting my daughter. One day I went to pick up my 5 year old granddaughter, and she handed me three dandelions that she had lovingly picked for her Mom.
As I looked at the precious bouquet, I thought how the most beautiful bouquets in the world are those seen through the eyes of love. When some look at dandelions, they may see a weed. I choose to see a beautiful flower, and so did my granddaughter.
In these warm days of spring… fresh green grass… blossoming flowers… and chirping birds, May our hearts be renewed again…may we feel a new sense of hope… new life… new beginnings…
May we hear the music God has sent to refresh our spirits.
“Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come.”
Song of Songs 2:12
May we affirm within ourselves that we are all precious and beautiful in God’s sight- just the way we are.
“In a world full of roses, stand out like a dandelion in the middle of a green, plush lawn.”
– June Stoyer
As I look at my granddaughter’s precious bouquet again, I thank God for all of the unexpected gifts that fill my days.
Through them, I feel the constant joy, presence and love of Jesus. May those same gifts always be yours as well.
“A flower is prettiest when picked with love.”
