Looks can be deceiving. During this summer's drought I took note of what flourished in spite of heat and lack of moisture.
Queen Anne's Lace appears to be delicate. Her blossoms remind one of fine lace blowing gently in the breeze. This flowering lady is deceptive. If anyone has ever tried to remove her from their garden they will find a deep root system that is tenacious. Not only does she survive during severe weather she seems to thrive.
Some folks call her a weed. Not me. She symbolizes a strength borne out of hardship. Her roots are built on a strong foundation of faith. They seem to know they must go deep to seek life-giving moisture. Even in hard times she is able to share with others.
She appears fancy but in reality she is strong and not easily bothered by a season of trouble. Her head is raised in hope.
She not only gives nourishment to others she enables them to pass it on as well.
Have a Blessed Sunday. Thanks for stopping by!
