That Bit of Fluff

I looked out my kitchen window today and saw a bit of fluff…pure white. No, not snow flakes in mid-August. A seed. It may have been from dandelion, or milkweed or some other plant unknown to me. One of those seeds has attached to it a tuft of fuzz enabling it to travel perhaps for many miles. Just imagine for a moment what a journey that might be! I watched it as it lifted straight up and out of sight.

I put out seeds like that too and so do you. Seemingly innocuous thoughts, words and deeds come out of us continually, catching or being caught by an air current. Like that bit of fluff, we’ve no idea where the seed might settle and take root.

This particular seed, I think is one that is thoughtlessly let go, set adrift on that passing current to settle, silently wafting to it’s mark to nestle in and to grow.

I know where you think I’m going with this, but that seed carelessly let go need not be negative or harmful. It just might be the very good. A thought, idea, dream, desire, prayer … A kind “hello”, a genuine “how are you” (because you really want to know), words of encouragement … stepping aside to let that other one go first even though it is your turn in traffic or at the grocery store, being what once was “inconvenienced” by that needy one but this time not noticing.

These are but a few examples of the very good that is hopefully becoming so natural to us that we think them, speak them, do them without forethought or afterthought (or any thought at all).

This only comes from spending time with the Father, often enough and long enough, that we will allow His Son to reign in us and His Spirit to fill us. May we over flow, bursting bits of fluff, each containing one tiny seed to travel where it may and settle in to grow.




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Sometimes we don't realize how the small things can make a big difference in the lives of others. Very good article, and very good advice. :)
