Lessons From a Weed

I tried to rid my yard
Of weeds and other things.
Complaining of the work
And all the mess Spring brings.
I pulled up every dandelion
The next day there were more.
I could not understand
What were these things for
And then I stopped and looked
And realized the lesson at hand.
How could I be so blind.
How could I not understand?
We must take a lesson
From these silly little weeds.
And trust God to plant us
And take care of all our needs.
They have an inner strength.
And shrink not from a fight .
And gladly share their beauty.
With all their simple might.
I no longer feel the desire
To toss them all away.
I enjoy their sunny faces
And thank God for them in my day.
