Rejected but Beautiful

St Pauls is not blessed with a large luxuriant graveyard. Nevertheless, as we approach the building at this time of year there are a profusion of daffodils and other flowers. Of note are several clumps of primulas, which are probably the plants which were surplus when flowers were distributed to mothers and other ladies at previous Mothering Sundays.

Those plants may only have been a surplus then, but now they are prominent in their beauty. Is that an illustration of how God can use people that the world counts as unimportant to do great things for him?
