Blonde Logic: The Perfect Diet
A blonde woman goes to her doctor about her weight, so her doctor puts her on a diet.
“I want you to eat vegetables and grains for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two weeks.
The next time I see you, you will have lost at least 5 pounds.
“When the blonde returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly
“Why that’s amazing!” the doctor said, “Did you follow my
The blonde nodded. “I’ll tell you, though, I thought I was going
to drop dead that the third day.”
“From hunger, you mean?” “No, from skipping.”
I love beautiful flowers and have long admired people who have a creative eye for designing them. I use to read garden books and how-to books trying to learn the proper care of plants and how to growing then. My mother could make anything grow. However, the growing and gardening gene missed me somehow. I either loved my flowering plants too much with water, fertilizer, and conversation or dried them out with not enough. I find it hard to keep anything alive except cactus!
Because of my lack of talent in the floral department, when we built our home, I decided to have plants and evergreens around the house that grow annually. They looked wonderful but not much color or contrast. So one spring I went to “Michaels” a craft and hobby superstore to buy some beautiful tall silk flowers in pink and reds. My conditions were extra tall stems, large flowers and to look real. I was so excited about this bright idea; I couldn’t wait to get home. Arranging them in the evergreen bushes and flower pots, I felt satisfied with my creativity.
When people drove by they would comment on my beautiful flowers, I was glad they noticed but hoped they wouldn’t get too close and learn my secret to success!
As summer turned to fall, my flowers still were in full bloom. However one evening we had an early winter storm which blew in with heavy sleet, and the wind. The storm lasted for two days. It was so cold outside I had forgotten about my flowers. After the storm was over I check on my flowers, and they were still standing tall and blooming beautifully; it’s a miracle! My secret had been exposed.
I have learned there are over 230,000 to 270,000 species of flowering plants, and each one is uniquely beautiful and extraordinary in its own way. I think God looks at each one of us as a beautiful flower too, designed perfect, and precious to be loved by him. Each one is important.
Luke 12:28 New Living Translation
And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
He loves and accepts us just the way we are, no conditions!
