MEANING OF A DANDELION
Surely Dandelion is an odd name for a class, I know, but the meaning was too rich. Let’s take a peek at what it means.
The white fuzz is attached to the seed and acts as a parachute. A parachute allows a heavy object to land gently.
The wind catches the seeds and carry it great distances.
Dandelion translates to dent-de-lion in French, and means “the lion’s tooth”. This symbolic meaning of a lion, which deals with courage, pride, family.
The symbolic meaning of a tooth is wisdom.
Interestingly enough the dandelion is also a sun (son) symbol.
A bare dandelion stalk is known as a ‘puff,’ and it symbolizes letting go of the past.
It can also represent resilience and rebirth.
Dandelions have one of the longest flowering seasons of any plant.
Seeds travel a great distance and can be carried as many as 5 miles from their origin.
While it may be considered a useless weed, I find a dandelion to be full of life, resilience, and power. You may find yourself on a path you never dreamed of, but only God can take that and turn into something so beautiful. You and your children may be walking through some barren seasons, but God can carry you further than you imagined and cause amazing things to bloom in the midst of it. Just watch and see what happens when He blows on the seeds planted.
