Daisy chain


Easily thousands of small lawn daisies have been carefully selected to be woven into daisy chains.

From the first time of learning how to create a length of flower decoration my sister and I made many.

Our wrists, our hair, sometimes our necks would be dotted with the small white and yellow flowers.

My best friend in high school and I spent one afternoon in the school yard weaving chains while waiting for our ride.

I saved that chain for years as a reminder of the whimsy of youth.

After our girls were born I have woven them chains for their hair or wrists.

In all of this I have often been impressed that such tiny flowers, which grow without help of any human hand, can be so fun.

Why does God have these little flowers pop up every year?

What possible use are they, besides daisy chains?

I am convinced that it is because He loves beauty.

Look at pictures of the planets.

Stunning beauty in the incredible size of the solar system.

Look at the Cascade Mountains, the Grand Tetons or any mountain range and the gorgeous scenery leaves you breathless.

Even in the desert there’s picturesque colors and forms.

All of creation points to the wonders of God.

Even the weedy lawn He has decorated with daisies.

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made,…” Romans 1:20a

What part of creation, (beaches, lakes, parks, camp grounds) have you loved?

(I know camp grounds and parks have been man made but man used God’s plants, trees, and waters to create.)

Before the weather changes to require being indoors I hope you are able to spend some time enjoying the creation.

As we do, let’s be sure to thank the Creator!
