Flowers in Heaven

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.

Loved your article. Made me think of one of my Grandmothers favorite hymns. She is now experiencing it... "I come to the garden alone... while dew is still on the roses..." She's with Jesus amongst the roses.. Thanks for sharing your visions of Heaven.

I like this line: "...In the time it takes for a rose to come to full bloom, I too have changed many times over..."
