I think every little girl loves dandelions!
She picks a stem of dandelions and blows it to the wind and they float away only to land again, some far and some near. And they grow where they are planted.
My life is a little bit like the dandelion seeds blown to the wind, but planted again where God knows I will grow.
I was first uprooted and blown away from North Carolina to be planted again in Minnesota. I didn't know that I would grow best away from the country and instead in the heart of a big overwhelming city, but this is where God has planted me for the last 6 years and now I see it was beautiful. It has not always been easy and there have been many tears, but it is beautiful.
but now I find myself about to be taken up again into the winds and blown elsewhere. This time a little further away than before. This time not alone. This time, with my husband, we are about to fly away in less that two months to be planted again in Israel.
We have seen God's hand move us toward this direction and we have seen God open the doors for us to go there for the next two years while my husband pursues his master's degree at a school there. I never dreamed this is where God would take me/us. But this is the story God so far has for us and what better place to be than to be blown and planted where God wills.
I am happy to be God's dandelion!
