He Love Me, He Loves Me Not - Today's Flowers

Did you ever like someone and take a flower and pull it's petals off saying "He Loves Me... He Loves Me Not", alternating with each petal you pulled? That's what these photos reminded me of today.


And then I thought of God and how He loves me... and how He loves you. And I don't care how many times a little doubt may creep into your head, it's a guarantee that no matter how many times you might try this, the last petal will alway be "He Loves Me." HE LOVES ME!


Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us. and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins... We have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him... We love him, because he first loved us.
--1 John 4:10, 16, 19

Isn't it amazing how much wonder there is in the details? I can't see how anyone would really believe that it all evolved by itself. God has terrific beauty everywhere we look!

I see God's beauty in things HE created like these flowers above. Isn't their beauty that our eyes behold is the demonstration of HIS great LOVE for us? Because in their beauty, we feel happy!

Christy said...

Beautiful floral pictures. I love the verses that you chose - such a perfect quote for your theme. I also loved that you used KJV for quoting from. While I am not of the KJV-only movement I do prefer the KJV version for memorization and quoting. Wonderful job.
