I love daisies! They have always been my favorite flower. I love their simplicity and their beauty.
The daisy flower means innocence, purity, loyalty, love, and cheerfulness. They come in many colors. There are many types of daisies. They love the sun and grow in any type of soil. They all start with a seed. You plant the seed, give it water and sunlight and it grows to a pretty flower. When the flower starts to wilt you pull it off and it grows back.
This description reminds me of a Christian. We love the SON, we should be pure, loyal, full of love and joy. We come in many colors and sizes and should be growing in our “soil” the Bible.
That doesn’t mean that we won’t have problems or trials. We will! But, we have the Son Jesus, who helps, if we allow him too. Just like a daisy needs the sun and water to grow, we also need the Son. Sometimes we wilt, we go through the storms, but when the storm is over, and the sun comes back out, it seems even brighter than before and we may even see a rainbow. Adults still get excited about rainbows. 😊
““I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”” John 16:33 NIV
I remember pulling off daisy petals one at a time saying, “he loves me, he loves me not.” I have found that HE loves me no matter what. He loves you too.
“neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:39 NIV
A simple life is a beautiful life. I love simplicity. I don’t have to have the “best” of material things because I have the best of all things, Jesus.
We live in such a busy world that sometimes we forget to enjoy life. Take time to enjoy the simple things…a sunrise, sunset, the stars in the sky, the sound of the ocean, (if you’re lucky enough to be by it 😉) wildflowers, a snuggle or hug from a loved one.
We love to sit on the back porch and watch the squirrels or listen to the birds sing or the wind chimes. So peaceful! One of my favorite things is the wildflowers or “weeds” that the kids pick out of the yard and give me. They don’t see weeds, they see pretty little flowers and are so excited to give them to me. Oh the children, they know how to enjoy little things.
“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”” Matthew 19:14 NIV
I took this picture last summer. I love the wildflowers and weeds with the beach and sky in the photo. Only God can make something so beautiful.
Enjoying the simple life,
