Dead nettles in flower with 3 Dandelions

For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; Fear not, I will help you.

Isaiah 41: 13
I picked these dead-nettles and dandelions yesterday. They were growing on the verge of the road. As a flower they represent hope, growth and healing.

But dandelions was what she mostly saw. Yellow jewels for everyday studding the patched green dress of her back yard. She liked their demure prettiness second to their everydayness; for in that latter quality she thought she saw a picture of herself, and it was comforting to find that what was common, could also be a flower.

Dandelions, like all things in nature, are beautiful when you take the time to pay attention to them.

Dandelions poke through sidewalks. They do not know enough to give up🤣🤣🤣.

White dead nettle flowers and leaves do not sting. These flowers cluster together in whorls around the stem. There are some black dots under the white petals like black eggs. ( I don’t know exactly what insect has placed them there
but I have found out that the Red Admiral, Comma and Small Tortoiseshell butterflies lay eggs on nettles. Their larva is seen munching the leaves.)

This morning I looked at the group in the glass and the dandelions looked three quarters asleep. The dark pencil lines on their outer petals at their best.

Cause-and-effect will not explain even the individuality of a single dandelion.

D.H. Lawrence

A dandelion is it common / individual / both?

In the Word of God it is clearly shown that the strength of nations, as of individuals, is not found in the opportunities or facilities that appear to make them invincible; it is not found in their boasted greatness. It is measured by their fidelity with which they fulfill God’s purpose.

E G White P K 502

Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever, for wisdom and might are His: And he changeth the times and the seasons; he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding… ( Daniel then explains the meaning of King Belteshazzar’s dream in the rest of the chapter:

Head of gold Babylon 605-539BC

Breast and arms silver Medo-Persia 539-331BC

Belly and thighs brass Greece 331-168 BC

Iron legs Rome 168 – 476 AD

Toes of the feet iron and clay Ten kingdoms 476AD?)

Daniel 2:20-22
