I absolutely love daylilies! These beautiful flowers bloom for a day; a glorious, perfect blossom for one day. They get one day to be their best! The rest of the year they look like overgrown grass in need of a mower.
What an excellent example that we should take every day with an expectation of excitement and wonder. If we only had one day to be our most beautiful, how would we live the rest of our lives in preparation for that moment? If we fell short along the way and allowed ourselves to wither and die because of unmet, unrealistic expectations in our mundane, everyday life, we would miss the opportunity for God’s perfect plan for our life: to bring forth His beauty in us as a reflection of His glory to others, causing joy and happiness within each other. And, unlike daylilies, we have this opportunity everyday!
Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
