Message in the Flowers

I received a nice bunch of daffodils from a friend, when I came home from hospital on Tuesday. 

They were tall and straight and in tight bud.  I put them in a vase with water and stood them where I could see them the most, in the warmth of the room where I was.   Gradually over the last two days they have opened and are now in full bloom.   It`s a real joy to watch how they develop and grow.  Really beautiful.

That set me thinking - how we are like those daffodils.   With warmth and love, care and concern we too grow.  And, best of all is God`s love for us.

Happy Friends' Day

Daffodils are my favourite too. Here they are called Easter Lilies.

PS God spoke to me in a similar way at the silent retreat last week - I received a fresh flower bud - over the three days it opened ... and as it did I saw it as a prophetic picture of what God is doing in my life
