Spindly Marigold

Garden Lullaby, October 24, 2018

While there is life to be lived, these marigolds will be living it. I once called them ugly. They got eaten…TWICE. But here they are. HERE THEY ARE! 

Deep, strong roots evidenced by spindly, sparse, unfragile blooms. Nothing is more beautiful in my porch garden than these resilient marigolds and their hidden roots. I’m learning a thousand ways to live like these marigolds…bold, resolved, and rooted in God. Meanwhile, spindly, unfragile joy is breaking to the surface, and I’ve never been more happy to be a twice-eaten marigold.
