Scripture reference;

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:37-40 KJV

 

Have you ever heard of “Everlasting Flowers”? I hadn’t. The flower in the picture looked familiar, but there are so many daisy-like flowers in the world. I just finished reading a little about them. The descriptions of these pretty flowers that I read said they are easy to grow, and make nice cut flowers that also can be dried. They also self-sow freely which is great if you like volunteers; if not just deadhead the flowers.

The Lord wants us to grow up in Him and to multiply. It pleases Him whenever this occurs. All who believe in Him have everlasting life.

 

“Everlasting, Immortelle” by Theresa Anne Moore

 

Pretty flowers all around

Sowing seed upon the ground.

Countless flowers, can you tell?

Everlasting, Immortelle

 

 

This post was submitted as part of the A to Z Challenge, where participants agree to post an article that corresponds to each letter of the alphabet and publish an article every day during the month of April (except Sundays).

Here at Serenaded Softly, my theme for the month is Blossoming Verses, where I’ll share a picture of something in bloom, a passage of scripture, and a poem.
