Dialogue - Experience
| A beautiful bouquet of flowers, surrounded by baby's breath. To make amends for putting up with the sender, it was to be delivered at 4:00pm. The tension behind it was heartfelt. A note was sent with the flower bouquet with the persons' signature on the back. The phone rang to let the person know that the flowers were on their way. Just before the doorbell rang, the receiver was saying to the other half, "I wonder who could be sending us a bouquet of flowers? The sender couldn't help but let out a bit of a giggle (or chuckle). Soon the doorbell rang. The person delivering the flowers said that they didn't know who sent them, but, here they are. The receiver said that they were beautiful. Not long after that the receiver looked at the sender and said, "Did you send us these flowers? The sender said yes. The response after that was not what the sender expected. The receiver started to cry and didn't seem to be thankful or appreciative of receiving them. The sender was shocked, and felt sad about this.|
Surely the flower bouquet was hurt by the response from the receiver. The bouquet was beautifully arranged. The flower arranger put their hands to good use; you could tell that a lot of love went into it. The bouquet probably shed some tears because it failed to make the receiver happy. Depression and disbelief most likely came about.
The day before the sender was supposed to leave the receiver's residence, another shocking thing happened. The receiver said that the flowers were beginning to wilt, and that they were going to throw the flowers away. Along with the flower bouquet was a packet to put into the bouquet to help preserve them for a while. I'm sure that the flowers could feel the negative energy behind what they said. It was a sad day for the sender.
Flower bouquets are sent to lift a person up, after being stressed out, or to show appreciation for their efforts.
To harbor unforgiveness in a persons' heart, is to become a very bitter person. We need to keep them in our prayers.
