pink tulips




"You believe
In God, for your part?—ay? that He who makes,
Can make good things from ill things, best from worst,
As men plant tulips upon dunghills when
They wish them finest."
       
 E. B. Browning—Aurora Leigh. Bk. II.

Psalm 113:7 - He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill. KJV

Prayers for all.

The tulips are beautiful..They may be fragile but God has brought great beauty out of them and they bless all who view them.....

They are so delicate, aren't they? Nothing like sturdy red store-bought tulips. These are God's handiwork fo sure.

Oh - this ministers Leslie. We have chronic illness in our family too, and I cling to such thought and truths.
