I love flowers for their beauty and for their fragrance; and I am disappointed when they wilt and die. I surround myself with artificial flower arrangements for their lasting beauty but would much more appreciate the real ones. God makes us all beautiful and a forever bloom in His kingdom.
Flower of Eternal Life
On earth a flower’s beauty fades
On the vine it does not forever stay.
Its promise of pleasure is no more,
Its lovely attributes fall to the earth’s floor.
Flowers on earth are presented as gifts.
The aroma of some, are hard to resist.
Lovely to look at and lovely to smell,
Each bloom has its own story to tell.
Just so are the children in the land.
The flower of youth proudly stands.
But beauty fades and droops down,
With or without sweet aroma also fall to the ground.
But there is a Flower that forever blooms.
He is, was and is coming soon.
He lived, loved, and died for man;
So His life and His love you could understand.
Because you are His and He is in You,
You are now a flower in full bloom.
A forever flower, eternal life lives within.
Because He is life, and You are one with Him,
You are the flower I send to grace the table of the lost;
Full of good fruits that show the way to God’s love on the cross.
1 John 2:17
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.
