IPeter5.5In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”       I Peter 5:5Humility is that indefinable essence that finds itself accepting authority and relating to others as a servant, or a step-stool.  In a flower garden the gladiolas trumpet their appearance with a flourish.  The rose exudes a sweet, though powerful essence, belonging to a princess.  The orchid brings a delicate mystery to the beholder.There is one flower that stands with its feet planted sturdily in God’s creation.  Its simply beauty reflects the glory of God without calling attention to its color or design.  The Daisy lives its life simply and with joy, brightening others’  lives with a melody that sings of God.Mother (Anna Daisy) lived the life of a daisy and wrote this poem…“With joy I look into your simple face / And gaze in awe at petals round your sun; / You mirror light of sky and waits in grace / When greening fields share hope with everyone.You always persevere from year to year / You rise from sun-warmed sod to bud again. / Each spring your magic blossoms reappear . If nature gives you sunshine, wind and rain. I do not weep; for you live in my heart / Through winter’s cold when fluttering snowflakes fly ‘ Until another year unveils your art. / I thank you, Daisy, for the song you sing. ‘Simplicity is such a lovely thing.'”Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:12-13
