The Beauty of the LORD

Purslane in pots

Several years ago Sharon bought a plant stand for me. It consists of copper legs and an upright copper post that holds three 8″ pots as you see here. I tried different types of flowers for a few years but nothing worked to my satisfaction until I tried Purslane. It fills the pots and flows down the sides – and it covered with flowers most of the time (this picture is early in the season – see the one below).

In our heat and drought, a necessity has been water absorbing crystals. They have worked wonderfully and I think have helped the plants to stay alive.

“One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in His temple” Psalms 27:4

As beautiful as flowers are (and I believe they are a reflection of the beauty of the LORD), they only reflect an infinitesimal portion of His true beauty.

  1. Bill, as a gardener myself, one of the many lessons to learn is “what does well in certain areas”. I guess that is part of the fun of gardening. I love it that the Lord is infinitely creative and one of those highlights is in the countless variety of flowers He has blessed us with. Best with your garden and enjoying the beauty of the Lord. Peace and Blessings!
