An Inspirational Flower – By Guest Author Phil Payne
On Valentine’s day, each resident (or couple) at Covenant Living received a lovely bouquet of roses and poppies. As I looked down at one of the poppies I saw a thin ring of gold at the center. So –
thanks to the wonderful camera on my iPhone and a little bit of Photoshop editing I can share with you what I saw.
I immediately thought of Jesus’s words recorded in the Bible. (Matthew 6:28-30) “Consider the lilies of the field. They neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you that (King) Solomon in all his splendor was not clothed like one of these.
Was Jesus holding up a purple poppy – just like the one I photographed? In the poppy, I can imagine that I was looking down on King Solomon from above. His jet black hair is parted at the middle, There is a crown of gold on his head, and radiant purple robes fall off his shoulders. Can you see the image? Does the photo enrich the scripture for you?
