A SiP [Scripture in Picture] of Spring – A Quasi A-Z Post

I’ve had a post about dandelions sitting in my ‘draft’ folder for a year. Today, which is the letter ‘D’ for the A-Z challenge, seemed like a good day to finally publish it.

I used to cringe whenever I saw a dandelion in my yard. Dandelions were the pimples on the face of my lawn. I weeded and fertilized but they kept popping back up.

And then my daughter took her first steps on the grass and immediately ran to study and touch the beautiful yellow ‘flowers’. The bigger she gets, the more she enjoys the ‘pretty flowers’. She picks bouquet after bouquet that sit brightly in my kitchen windowsill reminding me that God doesn’t make mistakes. I see dandelions in the light of childhood wonder and find myself appreciating everything God has created – even the ‘ugly’ parts.

Every dandelion raises it’s head to heaven, acknowledging God, the Creator of everything we see and don’t see.

  1. What a lovely post! My girls love dandelions, they pick them for mommy and when the time of the year comes, the pick them to blow as hard as they can. Childhood is a beautiful time full of wonder and innocence. I’ll never think of dandelions in the same way.

    Happy D-day and IWSG

  2. Your daughter has an eye for great things. I think that this is a really great post. I have to remember to look at the ugly things as well. Dandelions are not that bad, though it is a weed. All that grows in our garden, unfortunately, is weeds. Good luck with the rest of your posts.

    P.S. Thank you for the kind words on my blog. They really brightened my day.

  3. Beautiful post! I love dandelions . . .but my husband regulates them to a certain part of our yard . .. but that’s ok. I don’t know that I want them taking over, but I love their sunshine color, their fluffy seeds, and their persistence.
