Alright. I have to admit my new backyard is going to take a lot of hard work to get looking like a golf course. But, in all the weeds I have found joy. God is so gracious to even make the dandelions beautiful. My mother in law had a real love for sunflowers. She created a devotional about them relating how they would stretch for the sun and open up once they found it. She related all that to us needing the Son and then opening up once we find Him and allow Him to shine down on us. To always turn our face toward the Son. I have it if anyone ever wants to read it. I could forward it to you.

Well anyway, I have discovered that dandelions do the exact same thing. They "sleep" at night and then stretch for the sunlight. Once they have it pouring down over them they awake to all the beauty God created in them. I have found that although I don't enjoy trying to walk in my backyard barefoot right now I absolutely love watching it. It is gorgeous.

I hope and pray that you have found the Son Light in your life and that you are allowing the beauty God created for you to shine through. There has been some definite stretching in my life to get into that light at times but it is worth the effort. Just ask the dandelions!!

How incredible is the God we serve? Even the weeds seek the light of the Son! Thank you for this reminder. Once again, you have inspired me :)
