Weeds or delights?


My husband despises dandelions, feeling they are his nemesis in the quest for a nice lawn. I respectfully disagree. They signify the delight of a child, the freedom of fancy and reminders of days long gone. This child of mine has never passed one, without looking for another to share with her mother. If there is only one we blow together, the excitement on her face as she runs towards me with an outstretched arm clutching her treasure. These soft and delicate creations only bring me joy when carried in the growing hands of a child.

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”

  1. I just have to say the excitement on her face is very enjoyable, but I have to say enjoy the beauty on someone else’s lawn 🙂
