Our neighbors’ yards are covered in blue bonnets and Indian paintbrush. We, on the other hand, have this one lone blue bonnet

For three years in a row I have scattered wild flower seeds - all to no avail. Or so I thought.

On our walk today, my husband spotted this one in our front yard. I am thrilled. It’s like a little love gift from the hand of the Father right in the midst of these difficult days.

This one little flower holds within its heart the promise of abundance. In a few weeks it will scatter seeds of its own that will hopefully take root over the course of the next year.

It’s a picture of hope even when it looks like all is lost.
