OH, those meddlesome weeds,
But to the child
all was beauty!
As the breeze
blew through my soul
I picked a yellow dandelion

And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:2-4 ESV)

Whether the day is sunny or stormy,
the birds in my yard sing anyway.
There is quite a revelation in this!

Here I sit at my desk looking at images of yesterday’s Pentecost splendor as the tongues of fire touched all in attendance just as they did that first time.
How did His disciples feel on this day? Did they feel as I do? Did they feel almost slain by the lingering heat from the flame of yesterday? Surely their countenance would never be what it once was as the Light shining through them was something never known before and which they’d risk EVERYTHING to share . . . and here I sit, in my brokenness desiring to do the same and confident that He will guide me all the way.
3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated
and came to rest on each of them.

Why do we have no qualms about missing worship,
yet are so very quick to make the false claim that our prayers go unheard?
Thankfully, we are loved and forgiven! – Martha LShaw
