A Time For Everything

There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Like the dandelion there is time for everything...

Dandelion's have a tendency to pop up unwanted. They intrude in our yards and our lives.

Every spring the little yellow flowers blanket my yard and every year my hands dig into the dirt picking and prodding the unwanted visitor's. I can't wait until fall.

Every fall dandelion seeds blow in the wind; scattered about willy-nilly. I am glad when the final seeds blow somewhere unknown.
Christian's have a tendency to be like dandelion's.

We pop up unwanted. We intrude in peoples lives.  Unlike dandelion's we are easily gotten rid of. It doesn't take much picking and prodding to make us go away.

We are like dandelion seeds blowing willy-nilly. We don't care where we go as long as we don't have to confront our Christian tendencies.

Have we forgotten God created us as He did the dandelion? We may pop up unwanted. We may intrude. We may blow away willy-nilly.

Every spring I continue to dig and prod at the yellow eye-sores, but I know I will never prevail. The dandelion is a strong vital creation.
We are like the dandelion. We are strong vital creation's. There is a time for everything and our time is now. We are like the dandelion.  We need to intrude in other's live sharing our testimony. Our Christian seeds need to blow in the direction of love and peace.

There is a time for everything and the time is now!
