These flowers didn’t last

These flowers didn’t last

 

With an abundance of rain this year, we had an abundance of flowers…the “California Super Bloom.”

The thing is, these flowers, as amazing as they are, don’t last long around here. It reminds me of this powerful truth:

“You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God. As the Scriptures say,

‘People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of the Lord remains forever.’” (1 Peter 1:22-25 NLT)
