Greater than Solomon

Greater than Solomon

The Oxalis stricta a weed flower that inspired my poem.

Your rich golden color stands out against a backsplash of green.Too often others observe you as a nuisance,
But this my little friend you are not.
You are a testament to great grace;
A small demonstration of crafted beauty to behold and admire.
If only we would take the time to stop and consider your maker and ours, little yellow flower.

Background: I penned this poem this past summer while sitting on campus as Covenant watching the sunset. I was by myself and as I looked around I noticed a cluster of tiny little yellow flowers. I was mindful that everything I was seeing had been created by God, even this tiny flower. God cares about and crafts the smallest detail of this flower and if He cares about something so small how much more does he care about His children who have been purchased by Jesus’ blood.
