Tiptoeing through the Tulips

A glimpse of the garden on Sunday revealed petals nestled together.Monday it was as if they awoke and started to yawn...On Tuesday they batted their eyelash cupped petals and revealed their inner beauty.The three sided pistil made me think of Father, Spirit, Jesus.On Thursday, some of the tulips decided to take off their wraps and dance.Some will dance another day.Bathed in the glorious sun.Our Creator's majestic glory is reflected.This sweet family worshipped together - all at different stages.Drops of water still glistening on their leaves.Till at the end of the day, some that had been tightly nestled, put their petals out and swayed in the wind and sunlight.I want to be the one on the left in the Light of the Son.

Lora, this is a most awesome post.

I love how you story lined each stage. I love how you related it all to the Father God, our Creator. Praise be to HIM.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting & leaving a comment at my blog. It means so much to me to know that God's word is reaching out to people.

I planted some pink tulips this year. They are blooming right now, but not pink. The label said pink. "Surprise!" They are two different colors so far...white and black. I kept thinking how perfect to remember Christ with. The black reminding me of the blackness of the tomb and the pure white reminding me of His purity...the spotless Lamb.
Enjoyed your comments on my blog. That song...How Great Is Our God...it is going through my head all the time. A nice focus as we enter into this Holy Week.

Wonderful pictures. So Spring.

So glad you stopped by my blog.
Don't forget to stop by again. I am going to have a "card box" giveaway every month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing, so if you visit several times and leave several comments, you will have a better chance to win. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party, that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you link to my blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally, but TIME...has not permitted..but I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members and then there will be some fun blogs coming up from Disney World in May. I am so thankful for all my new friends.
