Flower for the Day 5-11-12


We need a break from all those flashy iris. Lily of the Valley has always had a very
calming effect on me. For the first eighteen years of my life I could see them outside the dining room window.
It is mentioned in the Song of Solomon (2:1): "I am the rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley". But for its simplicity, purity, and effortless splendor, I prefer Luke 12:27, "Observethe lilies, how they grow. They neither labor nor spin. And yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was as beautifully dressed as one of these."
Have a wonderful Mother's Day.
