A Dandelion for God

This is my desire
To honor You
Lord with all my heart
I worship You
All I have within me
I give You praise
All that I adore is in You

Does your heart want to create something of beauty for Him? There are ways to creatively "Gift-God." Even small things done with love focus our attention on Him and go to the heart of God.

Plant something and name it for whom He has been to you.

Put a favorite scripture on a rock, offer it to Him and set it out in your garden.

Cook a special meal or bake something just in His honor and share it with a friend. Write a special Grace for the occasion.

Plant a small pot with herb seeds. Put one of His names on it to thank Him for how His love fragrances your life.

Sing Him a song or write Him a psalm. (You thought David was the only one who could do that?)

Write Him a letter from your heart on beautiful paper. Place it in a safe place and read it every year on your birthday adding a P.S. for each year.

Arrange flowers in a nice vase and speak all the Names of God you can think of out loud over them.(His Name is as perfume poured out)

Draw something simple for Him. Frame it or make a Bible bookmark out of it as a reminder. Paint something on a canvas, a smooth stone, a plate and offer it up.

Take a walk and take Him with you. Let yourself be amazed by His Creation.

Use your imagination.

Make a display of your affection.

Put something in His basket with great love.
(Start with your heart)

Would you like to paint God a summer picture? Try these instructions by a fellow Texan. Not an artist? Don't be shy. God will love it. Remember what Mom did with the dandelions you picked?
