Truly from The Lord!
I sat there with the beautiful flowers in front of me. It was the most beautiful bunch I had ever received from anyone. As I inspected every part of it in admiration, I was even more astounded when I found a white “bird poo” behind one of the leaves!
“What?!! ”, I gasped in laughter and joy.
“Bird poo” has always been a private, humorous symbol of love between God and I. Please check out my “Pigeon Poo” story to understand and appreciate what I am saying here.
Indeed, the bird poo was truly solid evidence that the bunch of flowers was from the Lord. Surely, no florist would ever allow a bird poo to be in their expensive custom made-to-order bunch of flowers - as to do so would compromise their product quality and jeopardise their reputation. Therefore, it had to be the Lord's doing - for the sole purpose of letting me know personally that the bunch was from Him.
The Lord further confirmed this fact by making the flowers last supernaturally - the last flower withered on day 28. Amazing! Compare this to the ones given by my neighbour which withered within a day. One might suspect the florist to have harvested them straight into a bucket of water, but they were left out of water for at least the time they were arranged, picked up, and delivered to me which would have been similar timing to the time I chatted with my neighbour. Such a supernatural life span of flowers could only come from the Lord – for they were His flowers, He created them!
I cherished them so much that I took a few pieces of the flower petals and some of the greenery (especially the leaf with the bird poo on it) to press them for memory forever.
The agent had no idea that the Lord was using him to express His love for me - for the spiritual growth and healing of my heart. I pray for the Lord to bless him for his role in my life.
The Lord also used my neighbour, for without her, this hydrangea story would never have started. I also pray for the Lord to bless her for her role in my life.
And I bless the Lord for loving me, for never giving up on me, and for always working to change my heart to be like His. All glory be to Him!
