Be like the Daffodils

A friend posted about her daffodils today and that got me to thinking. Years ago, when we first bought our house the people before us had planted daffodils. I tried many things to get rid of them when they started to overrun the steps down to the driveway. I dug them up, threw them in the woods, covered them over with plastic, anything I could think of. Finally I thought I had gotten rid of them. Then the next year I noticed that wherever I had thrown them, they were growing, and multiplying. Now, over 35 years later they are still growing. My attitude towards them has changed to. Like my friend, I appreciate them more now. They are survivors. At this pandemic time we need to be like Daffodils and survive. How you might ask. Sure we are social distancing but what do Daffodils have to do with that?

Along with social distance we need to grow in our faith and our love for each other. We need to be like the daffodils in our faith, keep coming back to the Lord! Every time our faith wavers or fear creeps in, we need to go to the Lord. Remember 1 John 4:4- Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world!

Be like the daffodils and grow where you are planted and thrive!
