The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush

The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush

Today is number 100 in the series of 296 children’s book recordings that I made last year in my David Read’s Children’s Books project. I am featuring each one in order in a blog and intend to continue till all 296 are a part of this blog. When I first began blogging over five years ago I set as a goal ten thousand blogs. I may not live long enough to accomplish that goal but I have already accomplished several other writing goals. My blogs have and are being read world wide and I believe that I have touched hearts that I never dreamed that I would.

Some may think these children’s stories and my blogs are beneath them, but it is what we stand upon than makes us stand smarter and taller, I think. Often when one sees Bluebonnets in Texas one also sees a smattering of the signature orange Indian Paintbrushes interspersed. The contrasting colors each make the other pop brighter.

I am a fan of flowers as I believe Jesus, the prophet, preacher, teacher, was. He once is purported to have said of a beautiful field of wild flowers, “”Behold the lilies of the field they neither sow not spin, but I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these.” Far as I know there are neither Bluebonnets nor Indian Paintbrushes in the part of the world where Jesus once walked. Had he seen them I think he would have marveled as all who see them do like a child seeing and hearing that first story of a wider and more wonderful world. May they and we all have flowers wherever we go.
