This morning on his way to visit a dairy, Phil happened to drive past a rose farm. Yes, ROSES. I’m assuming that because he knows that my love for flowers runs deep, he decided to capture a shot of the rose field and text me the picture. I, of course, got very excited and he responded that the picture didn’t even do it justice! Amazing.
Someday I hope to see the rose farm in person, but the picture was beautiful enough for me for today. Beautiful things are forever a reminder to me of how beautiful and creative my God is. I found this Bible verse in Isaiah and felt that it was an appropriate pairing with the picture.
“It will burst into bloom;
it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
they will see the glory of the Lord,
the splendor of our God.” -Isaiah 35:2 NIV
I hope that your Monday is as beautiful as this field of roses and I pray that today (and everyday) you will see and know the majesty and glory of the LORD.
