Sometimes I like to think of what it would be like in Heaven. I close my eyes and imagine a trip with Jesus as my guide. He would lead me to places that only He would know. Places where my imagination could follow. As I envision these things I know that Heaven would not be in my imagination at all. I know that it would be unexplainable. It would be more glorious than anything my mind could think of and the flowers that were there would be too.
I like to go into my garden when the sign of spring has come and pick the first of many roses to set on my table in a translucent vase. I like to admire those flowers for many days and know that only the Lord could make such a beautiful thing. Usually those flowers last for weeks, slowly drying up and even becoming a work of art in the process. I hesitate to throw them out for fear that I could never get another set as beautiful.
In the time it takes for a rose to come to full bloom, I too have changed many times over. I think of myself as a flower in process of growing, living, becoming and dying many times throughout my life. Only God can do the impossible with a small seed and take that seed, plant it and make a work of art.
I thank the Lord daily for His glorious ways of making this world and all that is in it.
Never forgetting the least important of things, like flowers in a garden. Jesus is the way the truth and the light, but He is much more than this and I love to see all the details of life that He has had a hand in.
May the light of the Lord shine upon you and make all the flowers in your life bloom into a beautiful bouquet.
