An addition to my “Weeds” post, our hard effort in digging up weeds can be rewarded. You see there are good things under the surface. Dirt and weeds need to be tended and a personal circumstance needs our attention. Good things are possible for those willing to do the work. We can lean into another, the One who created us.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
Jesus made you wonderfully and for a grand purpose. Maybe there are times when you don’t feel His love but He awaits your communication. Just as these beautiful poppies took time to form and explode into their orangy-red glory, every year they bless my garden with their brilliance. They needed water, soil adjustment and weed removal.
You are a beautiful poppy in the making. It is said that sometimes we have to call something what it is until we believe it for ourselves. Friend, You are a beautiful poppy may your face look up to the heavens. There is a God who made you marvelous. Call out to Him.
“Jesus, I am here, show me how to shine and help me to feel Your love”. All it takes is one step at a time.
Next time you see a poppy remember it is a little touch of heaven just like you.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Loved the analagy of the weeds and the care needed – plucking out stuff that does not need to be there and seeing the rewards when doing the hard work of tilling up the soil. I appreciated this post Mary, well said.

Thank you, Kathy!
Thank you for this! I have come to enjoy poppies since we moved to Scotland. They are SO beautiful and they tend to surprise me! Your post reminded me of the art I had commissioned for this new season of ministry. It was just completed and finally arrived in the mail last week:
Have a great weekend! Peace of Christ, Kimberly
