Reaching Upward

This Tawny Daylily, sometimes considered an invasive plant, is waiting to be pollinated. Its stamens are reaching upwards, waiting for the wind or insects to complete the process.

Over the years, this particular patch of flowers was transplanted from our home in GA to our home in VA to my parent’s home in Ohio and finally to our home on the Mississippi Gulf Coast!

As I look at the stamens reaching for the sky I think about how we reach for our goals.

Are our goals the same as those of this flower to physically reproduce?

Or are our goals of a spiritual nature?  A goal to reach upward for guidance, discernment or in praise?

Are you reaching upward?

What are you reaching for?
