A Salvation Story

Sadly she lay by the side of the road, near the gutter, thrown there by its previous owner who had no use for her anymore. She had not been sold, was beginning to lose some of her beauty, was not wanted, so she was rejected... But along came someone who noticed her, noticed that she still had life, that there was potential for revived beauty. With joy she picked her up and took her home. There she set her upright again, gave her water to drink and cut off the dead leaves and wilted flowers. It wasn't long before she had totally revived and her beauty was stunning. I set her on the coffee table admiring her beauty...
I took at least a dozen photos, just couldn't get enough of her beauty! From every angle she was beautiful...
I did not know her name so I researched and found out that it is Canterbury Bells. Isn't that a lovely name befitting this beauty queen? After a few days of being enjoyed at home, she was taken to the Bible college to bring beauty and joy to others, too.
Many times during these days of watching a thing of beauty come out of my efforts to save this flower, I have been reminded of God's work in human lives. I'll let you make the comparison.

"(The Lord our God) raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; that He may set him with princes, even with the princes of His people." (Psalm 113:7,8)
