Dear God-

When you made this flower, was it for the sport of it? I look at the colors and I cannot lookaway. I see the gradient tones and everything else melts aways. I feel overwhelmed by the detail, the shape, the fit- it’s amazing. I know there is a scientific reason for each curve, shade, and olfactory note, but you are there too- bigger, mysterious, and drawing it all together. In the middle of chaos, grief, and frustration, help me to see your handiwork and to breathe deeply- finding joy and peace. – Amen.
