" The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;" Song of Solomon 2:12

Curiously Flowers are not really mentioned often in the Bible. There are words of things flowering and blooming, but only three flowers are mentioned, the lily, the rose and the camphire.

The Song of Solomon contains all three. In the New Testament, Jesus spoke to the people of the lilies of the field in one of His parables. He also spoke of the vine, the orchards and gardens, but not specific flowers. Easy to understand that flowers we have here in North America are going to be different from what was grown in that region 2000 years ago. The Camphire was a henna plant growing wild still today in the Orient. It bears clusters of small white and yellow flowers. The Roses mentioned in the bible were probably a variety like a crocus, a rock rose or even an oleander; these were the roses from that region. The Lilies are probably the deep blue Hyacinth found native to Palestine and Lebanon and the white lily, found in northern Palestine. This white lily is our traditional Easter flower.

Today we are leaving shortly to join Stacey and Larry. I think Tink is on her way. So my blog is short and I hope you will stay in prayer for our family today that Lauren Gracen will embrace life with a lusty cry as we add a brilliant rose to our family.

Joy and Abundance,

" The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose."Isaiah 35:1
