I love flowers because they remind me of God’s love for us. Sounds a little strange, I know, but hear me out. Although flowers do carry a certain practical purpose in the life and survival of plants, there are many flowers whose sole purpose is to look beautiful.
God put flowers on this Earth, not only as a source of life, but as a source of beauty – in sight and smell (even if they do make one sneeze). To me, they are like the finishing touch on a world already beautiful. A world not created randomly, but designed by a loving Father to His Children.
“…The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.” Alma 30:44 Book of Mormon
