In the heat of summer this little flower came up through a crack in the asphalt of our church parking lot. It was right in the middle of a parking space that is used daily, yet it survived the hot sun and the heat of car exhaust, with no rain or water, for more than a week. Maybe longer, I didn’t keep track of it after that.
Even in harsh circumstances and adverse conditions this tiny flower continued to bloom, day after day. It was a beautiful reminder of how God blesses us in the most unexpected places and ways. And it came at a time when I desperately needed it.
“God still draws near to us in the ordinary, commonplace, everyday experiences and places.
He comes in surprising ways.” Henry Gariepy
How has God surprised you lately?
