Birthday Flowers For Mama
Today is my sweet Mama's birthday!
These flowers represent all the beautiful things that she brings into my life. She has taught me so much and is always there when I need her. I also wanted to share some special hymns and verses.
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.
--Words: Cecil F. Alexander, 1848
"This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
-- Psalm 118:24
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!
--Words: Louisa M. R. Stead, 1882
"Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice."
Jesus is the sweetest name I know,
And He’s just the same as His lovely Name,
And that’s the reason why I love Him so;
Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know.
--Words: Lela B. Long, before 1925
"O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever."
It's a beautiful day and I'm wrapping presents and making plans. My mama is one special lady and deserves the very best!
I love you Mama and I'm looking forward to celebrating with you today! :)
