Blooming daffodils covered with snow
encouraged my spirits this morning.
The moment I saw them my heart ached.
My beautiful daffodils bent low with snow.
Not what you would expect in March but there it was.
I stooped to brush off the snow
and gently smoothed their petals.
Immediately they stood a little taller
and I knew that with the rising temperatures
they would soon bloom beautifully again.
There are times when life can suddenly throw heavy burdens our way.
can cause our spirits to droop
our attitudes to dip
and our hearts to quiver.
like those daffodils,
we were not meant to be under burdens.
No, we were not meant to carry it ourselves.
There is One
Who sees all
and knows all.
One Who stoops to brush off the load
or carry it
if need be.
Let’s remember Who He is
and who we are.
Let’s see Him tenderly touching us with love
knowing the reason we are bent
and let the wonder of His forever Love
lift our spirits once again
allowing us to fulfill the purpose for which we have been created.
Lift your spirits, my friends.
You are not alone.
There is One Who walks beside you
