Beauty – 2

As the perennials bloom at their time, then bow to the weather and fade, they seem to picture grace and humility.  Also hope, because they bloom again at a future time.

“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time…”

From Ecclesiastes 3:11a (KJV).


I chose this Bible verse as the theme for my blogs.  There is the beauty of each season in the garden, and the seasons of life.  With our long winters and short summers, I learn more each year about beauty.


The perennials inspired this poem awhile ago:

all winter
flowers rest
in the earth
beauty begins
in the heart
