Have you ever noticed how flowers can bring out different emotions/ feelings?
- Sometimes it’s joy- a birthday bouquet.
- Sometimes it’s gratitude- a dozen roses on a wedding anniversary.
- Sometimes it’s surprise- a friend stops by with “congrats on your new job” flowers.
- Sometimes it’s a hint of a smile in a sea of sadness- flower arrangements that fill a church during times of loss.
The beauty of the human spirit is, when our friends/ family are celebrating, we celebrate. When they hurt, we hurt.
Many of my friends and family are in the season of sadness. Loss has taken a front seat lately.
That’s such a difficult season to be in. It’s hard to know what to do for somebody who’s in grief’s midst.
Recently, I delivered meals to my friend who just lost her mom, and I also gave her a bouquet of flowers I picked from my road. She loved them.
For all of my friends/ family whose hearts are heavy, I am thinking of you, especially so this morning, as I walk in the wildflowers.
