After speaking to a fed up friend who called for prayer, I went to see what the thud on the mat under the letterbox at home was. A box of beautiful flowers had arrived. When opening it the guide to making the best of the flowers read ‘flowers looking droopy? Don’t worry! Flowers and greenery use water to prop up their stems, so if yours look sad, they’ll just need an overnight drink and the support of other stems around them.
How lovely to know that just as flowers benefit from water and propping up, we too benefit from the everlasting spiritual water that comes from Jesus and propping up by our friends.
