As I was in the shower this morning, I asked God to make Himself real to me today - and to use me to make Himself real to someone else. And they came right to mind.
Today they are saying good-bye to their young adult (only 30yrs old) son who just passed away. My heart aches for them. I've been praying for them. We've been praying for them. I know them - but I don't know them very well. And I've been trying to think of something/anything more that I can do or say, other than just make finger sandwiches for the fellowship time after the funeral. I know some people think fresh cut flowers are frivolous...but - I think this is it. Yes. I think this is what I should do. God made Himself real to me in such a remarkable and personal way once - and He used sunflowers to do it. I've never ever forgotten it.
I hope I can find a bouquet of sunflowers somewhere today.
Please help me find some sunflowers today.
They need them.
