Food for Flowers

Yesterday was the first of the month.

I'm hoping that you were not one of those that watched that date draw near with dread. Millions of Americans are jobless. Countless are struggling to pay the rent, utilities and put food on the table. Unfortunately, the numbers in this predicament will likely increase for a period of time.

This has me thinking of Easter flowers.

Lilies in particular.

Christians spend an enormous amount of money on Easter lilies each year.

There is not a church in America that needs lilies this year.

What if this year you spent that money on food for someone that needs it?

An immigrant. A refugee. An artist or musician. A shut-in. Someone in hospitality or the restaurant industry. Or those serving us within health care.

Maybe this Easter we should turn flowers into food.

Just a thought.
