A flower..and A Salute to All Women

I was in a seminar last month where the speaker asked a representative from each table to go out and pick anything from nature. The sweet lady from our group came back with 2 sweet smelling Rosal (Gardenia) in her hand.
We were told to study the qualities of the flower we had to see how this particular creation speaks of the character of the Creator.

Then, we studied the qualities of a woman....

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;
male and female He created them.  Genesis 1:27
I thank God for creating me in His image and likeness.

If I make a home
If I conceive a child
carry a child
nurture a child
raise and educate a child
This is ministry work
These fundamental human activities are
ordained by God
valued by God
And only a fool does not esteem them.
-Darrow Miller, Nurturing the Nations,p.244
Happy Mother's Day To All!
