Dandelions announce Good News
To the editor:
When I hear friends, neighbors and Speak Out comments complain about the carpet of gold (dandelions) in the early spring, I think perhaps they need more cold winters so they will appreciate the indestructible dandelion.
You can go to any lengths to rid yourself of this weed, but every spring it reappears. Just when we are looking for visible signs of spring, patches of gold appear everywhere.
Many people, Christian and non-Christian alike, become complacent. And then, all of a sudden, resurrection. It's everywhere. He is here. He is there. He is risen. He is alive, breaking into sleeping hearts. And, like the dandelion when it matures into a fluffy ball, our hearts come to life, and we spread the Good News. He is always ready to break through into closed hearts.
So tell someone that Easter is a happening event. Better yet, plant dandelions.
