God and the Dandelion

Beautiful summer.

Scattered Horizons

Looking at this dandelion really makes me think about life. Something so small brings such a great reminder to me. My life is like that dandelion. It is small, frail, and dying. And no, I'm not dying but I will one day. However, just thinking about the dandelion being just one flower is only partly true. All those blooms are seeds. And those seeds get scattered all over the earth and produce more dandelions. Lots more pretty dandelions. And it's the same with me. I may just be one person but it's my job to spread the seeds of God's love all over the earth. And through spreading those seeds I help produce more flowers (Christians). But it's not just the dandelion spreading the seeds that produces new flowers. It takes water, the right soil, and plenty of sunshine. And so it is the same for me planting seeds in other people. I can plant the seeds but they need the proper soil (God's Word) and water (the Holy Spirit) and lots of sunshine (people showing Christ's love).

I'm so grateful for this reminder that God sent my way through the form of a dandelion. His creation is so beautiful and full of these reminders! I hope that I stop and notice them often. And as for now, I will take the reminder of the dandelion and spread the seeds of God's love far and near throughout my life. I hope that I can produce many new flowers for the Lord in my time here on earth!
