For God’s Pleasure

Look at the detail of this flower. Gorgeous. It’s a daisy of some sort and adds to the beauty of my workplace. I walked around campus before leaving work in search of the perfect flower to share with you. There it was, under the flagpole, smiling up at me. It had some competition: the purple lantana, the apple tree blossoms, and one with fiery red petals.

But the very middle of this flower is what gave it the edge. The way the florets are arranged, it looked to me like the flower itself was holding a bouquet.

Scientists have documented over 270,000 species of flowers. I’m sure there are many more. Just as they stumble upon new species of life (I just read about a new lizard species found in the Philippines — 6.5 feet long), scientists will continue to discover more of the awesome extent of God’s creation.

Imagine there being flowers in areas so remote that, for now, their existence is solely for God’s pleasure.

I have the feeling He’ll be helping scientists to discover more and more of His greatness. In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy what He already has revealed.

Welcome, Spring!
