To see perfect symmetry is to see the work of God’s hand!
To be exposed to any form of life, is to be exposed to what God is capable of. Yet to see life in its human form is to be confronted with the reality of what transpires when the absence of God from humanity casts the darkest of shadows on His miracle of creation.
It is in these moments that an escape into the realm of nature that surrounds us, provides a smidgen of hope. And every now and then, it is in this ‘hope’ that we come face to face with the power of the Trinity.
The iris, so named for its depiction of the rainbow colours, depicts the same colours promised in a covenant with Noah. As such, the garden is our ark of refuge from humanity in its ugliest forms. It is our soul’s lifeline to a covenant where we find His peace. It is our prayer and meditation cathedral. It is the angel choir and our communion of Your whispers.
Lord, we praise You for the blessing bestowed on our lives through the beauty You have placed in our midst for our enrichment and comfort and for all those souls that share it with us. Amen
