I love flowers.
I love them in my gardens.
I love fresh bouquets on my dining room table.
My husband buys me flowers so often,
I bought a special vase just for his love offerings.
When I found these miniature daffodils
and grape hyacinths at Trader Joes,
I knew they would be a perfect pick-me-up
in the kitchen windowsill.
The tin cans were a gift from my niece, Lydia.
She found a box full at a garage sale and just KNEW
her auntie would love the ol' things.
They move around my house a lot,
as I find different uses for them.
Too soon, the flowers looked like this.
I planted the bulbs in the garden,
and put the tins back on display.
With this picture of bloomless, wilting flowers emblazed on my mind,
I began meditating on -
I Peter 1:24-25
"...The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
But the word of the LORD
My favorite preacher,
often reminds people that
there are only three things
that last for eternity.
wrote the Bible
for the people,
so if the people,
read the Bible,
they will know
A hearst has never pulled a U-Haul.
The only things we can bring to heaven
is our knowledge of His Word
and other souls that have trusted God's Son as their Savior.
Flowers are beautiful,
but will fade.
The Word of God,
and His promise of salvation
to all who believe
will bloom eternally.
Who would you like
in the bouquet of souls
you help win to the Lord?
