Weeds

I love growing flowers in my yard and I have way too many.  You can ask my husband who helps me water.

I don’t love growing weeds.  And evidently, they do not need water.

Weeds remind me of trials, tribulations, problems, just the icky part of life that sometimes walks right in and makes itself at home.  No water needed, no fertilizer or particular soil.  

So when I saw these weeds the other day at the edge of the creek the Father reminded me of a simple truth.

Sometimes those weeds can become pretty flowers.

Sometimes those things in our lives that bring us pain, frustration, and trouble can turn into the most beautiful part of our life.

I had to stop and think about that for a minute.   

Sometimes those weeds end up being the favorite part of our yard.

And all along I thought it was just a weed.

Reaching Down

I got to spend the week with my granddaughter and daughter in law recently.  I will openly admit I am totally smitten with this child.  I thought my own children taught me things…but this girl has already taught me plenty in ten months.

She is desperately trying to crawl.  When she has had enough she turns over on her back and waits for someone to pick her up.

I walked right by her the other night only to have my daughter-in-law remind me what she was waiting for.  I had walked past her and she had noticed.  It broke my heart when I realized she had be waiting on me.

I went back to her and her expression is one I will always remember.  I stood above her and put my hands out.  She got so excited.  Her sounds, her giggle, her expression is something that will stay with me forever.  

Is that how I act when the Father reaches down to pick me up?  Am I excited to be rescued out of the crazy position I have put myself in?

I do know one thing though, the love I have for this child does not compare to the love God has for His children.  He reaches down with love and cherishes His time with us more than we can possibly imagine…even more than I do with my granddaughter.

All this from reaching down and picking up our “Little Miss Sunshine.”  Trust me, I did not ignore her again.

Simple Feet

Simple Feet

I don’t like feet, except my granddaughter’s feet of course.  But once those feet start walking I may change my mind.  I cannot even stand to touch my own feet so you can imagine how pedicures go! Continue reading
