Fresh Cut Flowers

Good morning! 

I received this beautiful fresh cut flower bouquet earlier this week from the dear volunteer in our classroom.  She’s the best! 💖

I love hot pink, and I love fresh flowers. And I love Miss Cheryl even,more! She is one of the most generous women I know. With her time and her resources. I have been so blessed to know her.

I love fresh flowers. They bring a little bit of the outside in. Nature indoors. The only.problem is they do not last forever. Within a week or so, they usually fade and die. 

That’s because they are fresh cut. They are severed from their roots. Severed from their life source. 

That’s how it is with us. We may look beautiful on the outside for all to see, but if we become severed from our life source, our creator, we, too, fade and die. Maybe not as qickly as the flowers of the field, but we will not see eternity with our Father if we cut off our connection to Him.

Let’s all stay connected. To the source that offers us life. Eternal life. And until we meet Him face to face, let’s seek His word for our connection. Let’s leave the severed connections to the flowers we bring inside to brighten our material world.

Thank you, Miss Cheryl, for all you have done for our classroom. I have thoroughly enjoyed these past few years in your presence.  You have planted seeds in today’s youth that will grow and flourish.  Your garden grows greater than just the fresh cut flowers you’ve shared. 

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, but the word of our God shall stand forever.                                               Isaiah 40:8

Love and laughter, 

Sandy
