This morning our guest speaker at Auburn Bible Chapel, Carlo Raponi, played an audio clip by a former band called Five Iron Frenzy. Basically what the lyrics were saying was that when we see dandelions, God sees flowers. We see weeds, God sees beauty.
Remember, you are NOT a weed in the Father's eyes!
Here are those lyrics:
In a field of yellow flowers,
underneath the sun:
bluest eyes that spark with lightning,
boy with shoes undone.
He is young, so full of hope;
reveling in tiny dreams;
filling up his arms with flowers,
right for giving any queen.
Running to her beaming bright
while cradling his prize;
A flickering of yellow light
within his mother's eyes;
She holds them to her heart,
keeping them where they'll be safe;
clasped within her very marrow,
dandelions in a vase.
She sees love, where anyone else would see weeds.
all hope is found. Here is everything he needs.
Gently lifting hands to heaven,
softened by the sweetest hush,
a Father sings over his children,
loving them so very much.
More than words could warrant,
deeper than the darkest blue,
more than sacrifice could merit,
Lord, I give my heart to you.
