Finally…Flower Pictures to Share…

Here are some of the pictures of the flowers from the recent wedding I did. This wedding’s flower lineup included white hydrangeas, calla lilies and roses, blue delphinium, purple statice, peach wax flowers, green hypericum berries and grass…oh, and blue thistle! I have to admit I was a little nervous about this particular combination of flowers, but it turned out to be a beautiful mix!

And here are a few extra pictures I took. The best part was secretly adding the bride’s grandmother’s brooches into the bouquet–a special request of the mother of the bride that made it extra special for her daughter:

Wither or Flourish: Your Choice…

I was reading these two passages and noticed a striking similarity in figurative speech.

I Peter 1:24-25, “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.

Psalm 1:1-3, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked…but his delight is in the law of the Lord…He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither….”

Humans are frail; God is mighty. Without the word of the Lord, we will perish; with the word, we flourish. It’s our choice: will we depend and delight or depart and die? I Peter deals much with suffering and how we overcome it, looking to Jesus, who suffered ultimately for us. No matter we go through on earth, God is bigger. Nothing surprises him. He is good, and we can trust Him…and if we endure by depending on and delighting in God, we will overcome.
