Dried Flowers

It's the little things that can show you how truly beautiful life is. Flowers are a universal sign of romanticism. Romantic in the love sense surely, but also in something much more magical.

Merrian-Webster defines romantic as follows... Romantic: Marked by the imaginative or emotional appeal of what is heroic, adventurous, remote, mysterious, or idealized.

Oh how butterflies begin to beat within when we receive them. Our heart grows warm at the sight of a garden in full bloom. Spirits are lifted upon smelling their pleasing aromas. Take a closer look, still, and you see a magnificent work of art.

Each floral specimen is unlike another. At closer inspection, you can see all the intricate detail and perfection that was created with such love and care. The artist can be no less than a master craftsman. And He truly is that. 

What a treasure flowers are. A little gift to the world from the Creator of the universe. The thought makes my heart leap with joy.

I like to think that whenever I set my eyes upon a flower, I have just been given a gift. The King of the universe sent me that flower as a reminder that He loves me. He cares for my heart. All the days worries can melt away. He is there. He is listening. The ultimate romantic. 

Till next time.
