It is kind of how people view a dandelion. Many folks believe dandelions to be weeds; weeds that have a monstrous bloom of thousands of seeds that can be carried by the wind to create a mammoth problem in every inch of their garden or lawn. Then there is another perspective. The perspective of a child who picks that same dandelion that has now gone to seed and the child chooses to blow the seeds. But to them each seed represents a wish. The greater number of seeds equates to a greater number of wishes that could come true.
Sometimes our journey takes us through weeds and some pretty lousy soil. We can choose to approach those seasons with optimism, hope in the promise of God and prayer. Will it make the ground instantly fertile? Probably not but will our perspective be healthier and make it easier for us to navigate the terrain. YES and YES!
Next time you see a dandelion, choose to close your eyes and make a wish!
