A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates." (Proverbs 31:30b-31, NASV)

Flowers of the Deck

That which started out bare...

  ...was given life...

...& with time & nurture & a whole lotta love...

         ...has flourished....

  ...into something beautiful...

...yet even these beautiful flowers pale in comparison to us in the eyes of our Lord and Creator:

"Learn how the wildflowers of the field grow; they don't labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these! If that's how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won't He do much more for you - you of little faith?" (Matthew 6:28b-30 HCSB)

Take heart - you are as glorious as the budding trees and the flowering plants - you are loved and tended by the ultimate Gardener - God.
