5. Dandelion "Beautiful" Necklace
Do you know the difference between a flower and a weed? Nothing. Seriously. Look it up. It's totally true. One person's weed is another person's flower. The only difference between what a person considers a weed and what they consider a flower is how they see it and whether or not they want it. When it comes to dandelions, beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.
Did you know that when God sees you, He sees someone beautiful? It's totally true. Look it up. Maybe you've been mistaken for a weed once or twice in your life. No matter. It's Jesus, your creator and friend who beholds you, and what He sees is a bouquet of beauty beyond measure. May this necklace remind you of that truth.
This necklace is silver-toned and 32" long. The pendant is 1.25" in diameter (about the size of a nickel) and is accompanied by a charm featuring an amber swarvski crystal, and a small tag with the word "beautiful" on it. The necklace come in an adorable muslin "sparrow" bag--perfect for gift giving!
From "Gathering Dandelions: Meditations and Musings on Faith, Fracture, and Beauty Mistaken for a Weed" by Melissa Maimone:
Jesus is masterful at seeing the exquisite in odd places. ...He came for both the sophisticated and the rubes. Jesus finds beauty in those mistaken for weeds. He loves the unlovely and sees each one of us in amazing, unimaginably beautiful ways."
