Marjorie Camper frames a beautiful parable of an amazing promise in a moment in which she shared with her six-year-old son. It took place one spring day as the two of them were out in the garden. Mrs. Camper was absorbed in her work while the little boy explored the miracle of growing things exploding everywhere. All at once he picked a daffodil bud, sat down on the ground and studied it. Then with his two little hands he tried to force it open into full blossom. Frustrated, he cried out, “Mommy, why is it that when I try to open the bud, it just falls to pieces and dies? How does God open it into a beautiful flower?” And before his mother could give an answer, he made his own “Ah Ha!” discovery and said, “Oh, I know! God always works from the inside.” From a sermon by Don Shelby, First United Methodist Church, Santa Monica.
