Orchids in Bloom

It’s that time of year again.

Every time the orchids bloom, (or really any of our garden flowers)

I find myself enraptured by God’s incredible creative power. Just look at the beauty in creation!

And to think that even something this unique and beautiful is marred by sin and pales in comparison to its original glory blows my mind.

It makes my heart long for Heaven and restoration of all things and I find myself singing:

For the beauty of the earth,

For the beauty of the skies,

For the love which from our birth

Over and around us lies,

Lord of all to Thee we raise

This our hymn of grateful praise.

Come, Lord Jesus!
