When God Sends You Flowers

The most wonderful thing happened to my dear sister in Jesus today.  Her family has been going through some hard times.  They are understandably feeling low and as if they have these wounded places in their lives. 

And today, a friend of hers brought her not one dozen or two dozen, but FIVE dozen roses of all different colors!  One dozen for each member of the family, actually.  The friend said that as she was praying, God spoke to her and told her to do this.

When life gets so drab and colorless and wintry cold, when you are feeling numb and wounded and sad, it's just like God, isn't it, to break into your world and send you flowers!  That's just the way He is..

His love is unfathomable.  It's BIG.  It can handle any problem.  It laughs at danger and trouble.  It melts away despair and replaces it with bright hope!  It embraces those in sorrow and fills our hearts with the light of His presence.

In her own words, this is how my friend describes Him:  "God is love and has at His disposal the zillion pieces of His creation to prove it, to break through into the confines that we make ourselves.  He bursts through in full color, ........everyday!!"

I thought of the following song when my friend shared what God did for her today..

Oh, how He loves us...
