Life from Death

"When you see a field of dandelions, you can either see a hundred weeds or a hundred wishes."

Yesterday, these sunny little beauties shining at the edge of one of our cemeteries preached the most magnificent sermon about God bringing life from death.  This pattern is etched in every corner of creation, reminding us of what God has done in Christ.

"Truly I tell you, unless a {seed} falls into the earth and dies, it remains a single seed; but if it dies, it bears much fruit." - John 12:24
"Consider the {flowers} of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these." - Matthew 6:28-29
"Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field be jubilant, and everything in it." - Psalm 96:11-12
