Yesterday afternoon coming home from the week-end spent in another city, we stopped outside of this little town where a flea market was going on. We were drawn to this elderly woman’s tent where she had drooping hanging baskets and various plants. All at once we decided to buy this very ugly hanging basket with a few yellow flowers peeking out and a small pot of colored peppers, also dried up looking. We put them outside and watered them good with water and love when we got home several hours later.
This morning at my desk, I am looking out at this hanging basket standing proud and erect with beautiful flowers and hummingbirds sipping from the flowers! Am thinking about how God sees us when we feel worn out and droopy. Love is always the answer!
James 1:2 states “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds.” Often this may seem difficult, but release each and every challenge to God to see what He sees.
