Beauty in the Weeds

The lot next to my house is vacant and overgrown.  The county maintains it because it has a drainage ditch that runs through it. 

A couple of months ago the county came through and "cleared" a large portion of the lot removing a lot of the trees that had blocked my view of the main road.  What they left behind was an open mess.

As the rains came and now the warmer weather the lot became full of weeds. 

Last week some of the weeds began blooming turning the eyesore into some thing more splendid.

Seems like God does the same for us.  We should not be anything but an ugly weed but somehow He allows us to bloom and bring some beauty into the lives of others.

This post may be a bit hokey, but maybe someone needs to heat it.
