|Yellow Wood Sorrel|
Yesterday and Saturday we started our outdoor spring cleaning. Every year after the snow starts to melt we notice all the work that needs to be done outside. The dogs and those nasty ravens carry stuff all over our massive yard so this past weekend we started dragging and piling stuff to burn. We had tons of little fires all over. It was then that I noticed this sweet little flower. I know it is just a weed but it is so pretty and colourful in amongst all the dead fir and pine needles on the ground. Pretty soon the trees will be waking up from their winter slumber and buds will be appearing everywhere. Time to hang out that laundry and bring this wonderful smell inside the house.
Wild flowers do not last long and this reminds me of our life, for we are here today and gone tomorrow.
Psalm 103:15 NIV
The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
But we have the promise of our Lord...
Isaiah 40:8 NIV
The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God endures forever.”
Praise God His word will last forever!
