Dandelions


At the Vineyard Church of Waterville, we believe God is still speaking. Life’s much more fun that way! ๐Ÿ™‚

After worship during kinship, I always ask, “Anybody get anything?”

Last week, one person said, “I saw a fluffy dandelion.”

An audible gasp came from across the room. Another person saw a dandelion too.

The next day, my kindergartener’s science class DVD was on…fluffy dandelion seeds!

As if that weren’t enough, another person was walking through the parking lot at the box store where he works and he got…a face full of dandelion floating seeds! First time that’s happened in the more than 3 years he’s worked there.

I know it’s probably just coincidence. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But the imagery is awesome. Dandelion seeds go everywhere. And seemingly effortlessy. We also mentioned the idea of the seed being dead.

Then today at church, a man reminded me that it’s the “dry” seed that blows easily. And his wife said that, though dry, they’re still full of life.

I think “dry but full of life” speaks much better to where many of us are.

Would you pray this with us? I’d love to have the wind of the Spirit blow all over us at VCW and produce even more fruit all over the Greater Waterville region!
