A Bouquet of Flowers!

Season of Gratitude

A bouquet of flowers!

But . . . they’re so expensive. I leave my thoughts unspoken. You could have spent the money on so many others things: something more practical, gifts more lasting. Flowers fade so quickly!

A bouquet of flowers! Why do I find it so difficult to accept the fragrant blossoms? Is it a matter of control? Do I want to control how you spend your money? Don’t I trust you to be responsible with money? Or deep down, do I think I don’t deserve them?

A bouquet of flowers! Why can’t I just receive them with uninhibited joy, accepting that you give them with no strings, no ulterior motives?

A bouquet of flowers!

Thank you.

I will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the Lord.        Psalm 116:17
