Topic: Blog Carnivals!
A good friend of ours gave this to us a couple of months ago. Originally we used it for homeschool to teach solar power and, let's face it, it's just plain fun to watch.
Then, one day I walked out into the kitchen and saw it in a new light. No, not sunlight, but sonlight! After watching it for a few seconds, it almost looked like it was lifting it's arms and praising God. It seemed to be saying...
Praise God...Praise God...Praise God...Praise God!
...with every lift of it's petals.
It made me think of these verses from psalms 148:
1.The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, 2.it will burst into bloom;
it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
they will see the glory of the Lord,
the splendor of our God.
Okay, I know it might be a stretch, but seeing that little mechancal flower does remind me to Praise the Lord every time that I see it. It's something that we should be doing every day - every minute of the day. So, today I am grateful for my solar power flower that sits in our kitchen window and how it reminds me to always be thankful for the Sonlight that God is always shining down upon me. Praise the Lord!
