Flowers in the Bible

I have this thing for flowers...not sure why, but I just love them.  I love taking photographs of these fragile, intricate, and beautiful plants that the Lord created and put here for us to enjoy. 

As I was looking at my flower photos, I wondered - how many times is "flower" or a reference to it mentioned in the Bible?  I finally found this site that references over 100 different types of flowers mentioned in God's Word.  Love that! 

My hope is that you enjoy the photos of the flowers this morning.  But, most of all, I pray that your praise and worship time this morning will be a blessed time for you and yours.

Matthew 6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. 

1 Kings 6:35 And he carved thereon cherubims and palm trees and open flowers: and covered them with gold fitted upon the carved work.
Song of Solomon 2:1 I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
All my best to you this Sunday morning,

Gorgeous flowers. I love them too :)
Of your verse selection I like Matthew 6:29 and Isaiah 40:8 best :)

Thanks for sharing your love of flowers and consequently your flower photos.
Our family loves to smell them and gaze upon their spectacular colors.
I also appreciate you sharing that site link. We will most likely reference it often, homeschooling.

Hello Rachel and Becca,
There were so many more references, but I ran out of flower photos that day. :)

Another thing we have in common! I have an entire folder of flower pictures on my computer. I love to take pics of them...made an entire photo album of my MIL's flowers one year too. 8-) God's creation is what keeps me inspired and going on.
