Friends are super assets in life. As a loving gesture, one friend of mine gave me the gift of a plant to hang by my front step. The happy-faced flowers greet me with a cheerful countenance as I approach. In them, I see God’s artistry.
I have other flowers to enjoy beside my sidewalk. These are also gifts from loved ones. Delicate shamrocks descended from a plant from my maternal grandmother sit in six pots on each side of my walk.
Other showy plants decking our shady landscape are geraniums. These are the parent and daughter plants of a Mother’s Day present I received from my daughter.
Meditating on these plants, their beauty and their seeds, prompts me to ponder those that I might be planting. Do I leave behind me the seeds of such things as friendship, heritage, love and kindness to beautify the paths of those who will come after me as these flowers have. It might be fruitful to ask the Lord to help each of us choose such seeds.
Seed catalogs list a wonderful selection of physical seeds to spread around one’s garden. The Holy Bible, too, lists a great list of spiritual seed for one to plant. May the beauty of the Lord be displayed as you leave seeds through your works, your words and your world.
Delight your special friends and loved ones with the floral beauty of this card named “Gladiola”.
