the carnival of beauty: flowers "I do not think I have ever seen anything more beautiful than the bluebell I have been looking at. I know the beauty of our Lord by it." (Gerald Manley Hopkins) Flowers are BEAUTIFUL!! Truly they are works of art each carefully designed by the Creator God Himself. I am glad you have joined us this week as we celebrate together the beauty of flowers and the beauty of our Lord Jesus! Iris @ Sting My Heart As she was thinking about the beauty of flowers in her post Flowers Cheer the Spirit, Iris also remembered the promise of God not to worry about tomorrow. Barbara @ Tidbits and Treasures Barbara says she loves flowers, especially roses. So, she claims just a rose will do. In her post she also explains that Scripture says Jesus is the Rose of Sharon. Deb @ On the Vine This week, Deb posts about the influence of her grandfather in her love of flowers in Thanks, Grandpa! Heather @ Mom 2 Mom Connection Heather shares what her Japanese homestay mom taught her about the art of Flower Arranging.

Sometimes He actually gives us a glimpse of how He works, as Christie observes in a post written by her daughter Hannah.
