Do you realize that you are a part of God’s beautiful bouquet that ‘feels and fills’ the earth. (no typo) Yes, that’s who you are. I had arranged many beautiful flowers yesterday to fill my home with life. I placed them in all over. I placed them in the living room, dining room, at the wet bar in the hallway, the family room and the kitchen. My daughter walked in later that day and smiled with tears in her eyes. She said, ‘Momma the flowers make me smile.’ She went from room to room smiling. What a way to end a workday… with joy… Seeing her joy made my eyes tear up watching my daughter beam with sunshine, joy and love. My daughter was my flower that day, bright and beautiful feeling my heart with love and joy… Now you understand ‘the feel and fill’ analogy.
You are God’s flower to the world an object of living beauty filling every heart with love. A flower does not get to choose where he grows. It could grow in a sidewalk crack waiting to be picked. By the chubby little fingers of a toddler to express the love she has to her Momma. The toddler had found the most beautiful flower in the world… a dandelion… How precious it was crumbled by the feet of the pedestrians and missing most of it’s petals. The fragile dandelion all broken up still found a place of love in the heart of a child who shared it with her Momma. That toddler was my daughter who was taught to see and feel the love in all the aspects, wonderment of God…
The Message (MSG)
6-18 God makes everything come out right;
he puts victims back on their feet.
He showed Moses how he went about his work,
opened up his plans to all Israel.
God is sheer mercy and grace;
not easily angered, he’s rich in love.
He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold,
nor hold grudges forever.
He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve,
nor pay us back in full for our wrongs.
As high as heaven is over the earth,
so strong is his love to those who fear him.
And as far as sunrise is from sunset,
he has separated us from our sins.
As parents feel for their children,
God feels for those who fear him.
He knows us inside and out,
keeps in mind that we’re made of mud.
Men and women don’t live very long;
like wildflowers they spring up and blossom,
But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly,
leaving nothing to show they were here.
God’s love, though, is ever and always,
eternally present to all who fear him,
Making everything right for them and their children
as they follow his Covenant ways
and remember to do whatever he said.
GOD IS LOVE & LOVE CONQUERS ALL
