Lens Looks: AlumDandy

Aluminum DandelionsAlumDandy-WM

Two distinct elements exist within that name, which combine to form this unique breed of flower that grows in the King’s garden. Aluminum is a common metal with high reflectivity and good electrical and thermal conducting abilities; it resists rusting and can be recycled. The name “dandelion” comes from a word meaning “lion’s tooth.” “Lion” could be descriptive of a courageous or ferocious being or of a person of outstanding interest or importance. The dandelion is a hardy, yellow-flowered, composite plant (made of distinct parts) and is found in MANY grassy areas.Aluminum Dandelions

Drawing from the properties of these two elements, the King has fashioned and nurtured His Aluminum Dandelions. These flowers reflect the warmth of His light to the world around them. They are made of distinct parts, gently designed by the King’s hands into beings of outstanding importance in His garden. Their roots grow deeply into the King’s soil to drink the nectar of His Word. This nectar makes them hardy and able to resist decay, so that they may grow and produce fruit. Repeatedly, the Aluminum Dandelions serve as the King’s conductors. As He transforms their yellow flowers into white, feather-light parachutes, He carefully blows them from one part of the garden to another. Each of these chutes from each of the flowers carries a single seed. This is the King’s way of creating more of His special Aluminum Dandelions, and thereby causing His garden to become increasingly more beautiful as the seasons pass.
