Radiant daffodils

I have never read about daffodils in the Bible. Bible writers missed their chance to refer to or identify a beautiful flower. In March, we had about a week of unseasonably warm weather and the daffodils started to bloom across the Roanoke Valley. Daffodils say to all of us:  “see me, it’s spring!” as they give off their radiant yellow color.

The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. Psalm 19:8 (NIV)

God’s laws were never meant to be burdensome. They were given to us to create life and light. So when we are weary from reading Scripture the problem is not the Bible—it is with our hearts (ouch!!!). Yet this is good news, for the Bible not only exposes our hearts, it can also encourage and even transform our heart. The Scripture will reveal and equip us to work on the attitudes that we all struggle with (adapted from David Whitehead).

Note: the Bible mentions the narcissus; that is a close enough flower to the daffodil.

There’s Music in the Air

Daffodils are Spring Music

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daffodils are spring’s music

There’s music in the air,
When the infant morn is nigh,
And faint its blush is seen
On the bright and laughing sky.

Many a harp’s ecstatic sound
With its thrill of joy profound,
While we list enchanted there
To the music in the air.

By Frances (Fanny) Jane Crosby (1820-1915)
