Spring

Posted by Karen Hessen on Saturday, April 9, 2011 Under: Spring
It is finally Spring in Oregon. Yesterday was gorgeous and today is very nice. We are in Seaside today and the town is full of people enjoying the first nice Saturday we have had in months. 

I don't know about your neighborhood, but where I live, war has been declared. The annual battle against the dandelion. It is a love-hate thing with people and dandelions. When I was a mail carrier, there was one customer whose yard was nothing but dandelions. Do not as much as set one toe on her "dandelawn" or she would report you to the Postmaster General. Most folks, however, dress for battle; hat, gloves, boots and arm themselves with both chemical and hand-to-hand combat weapons setting out to destroy the unwanted pesky invaders.

My question is - WHAT WAS GOD THINKING WHEN HE CREATED THE DANDELION? Did God create them for their beauty? (You have to admit the turning to white fluff is amazing and remarkably interesting.) Did He put them on this planet for food? (Some people eat their leaves.) Did He create them to instill wonder in children? If we had not started plucking and prodding them from the earth, would this globe be covered with a lovely yellow carpet? I have a hunch that the dandelion became a flower non-grata when man sinned in the garden.

Sin brings a lot of weeds into our lives.
