The Flower of Eternal Life By Brenda Drake

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. 

The 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 falls to the ground.
Jesus is the 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.
If 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, You are one with Him,
You are a flower I send to grace the table of the lost;
Full of good fruit that shows 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.
