Flowers by God!
“And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these” Matthew 6:29 (KJV).
We know, according to Genesis 1, that in God’s great plan, flowers were logically down on His creation list.They were preceded by heaven, earth, seas, and dry ground. But in Genesis 1:12 we discover that after creating everything, including vegetation, “God saw that it was good.” I’m convinced flowers had to be a visual catalyst for that declaration.
Look around and tell me that God doesn’t love His firmaments, mountains, oceans, trees, etc. Now I know “God is love,” so I’m not sure if He bothers with degrees of love, but if He does, I suspect that the flowers He created for our multi-seasonal visual pleasure carry a very special love message for each of us. The reason for this portfolio is to exhort you to never overlook these visual and olfactory blessings, for they are from the creative mind and hand of God…just for you! Get excited!
