Our Lord’s Living Garden

“I understood that every flower created by Him is beautiful, that the brilliance of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not lessen the perfume of the violet or the sweet simplicity of the daisy. I understood that if all the lowly flowers wished to be roses, nature would no longer be enameled with lovely hues. And so it is in the world of souls, our Lord’s living garden.” Thérèse de Lisieux (1873 – 1897)

  1. We can not look at this glorious flower garden without having a thankful heart, mind and soul.
    Knowing we as humans were in no way able to create.
    One of many gifts we must thank our Lord, knowing each person is a gift in this garden of life.
