In the last couple of years I've developed a real appreciation for daylilies.
Old Sweetwater Cottage came with the common orange and yellow ones. I don't know how long the plant can live, but most have been there at least 30 years and some much longer. Anyone know the answer to that Q?
Don't you like the beautiful colors and form?
Whether they get doted on in a prestigious garden, or get a Coke can thrown on them in a dusty ditch on the side of a country road, they produce a new, beautiful bloom each day. It's their characteristic. It's what they do.
Jesus appreciated that fact. In Luke 12:27 He's quoted, "Consider how the lilies grow; they don't work or make clothes for themselves. But, I tell you that even Solomon with his riches, was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers." Consider the "daylilies" in your life.
