Differences Create Beauty


tulip-days-with-teagenDifferent flower types in a garden create a visual paradise of chromatography.

Gardeners strive for different textures, scents, colors in creating a sanctuary of calm in their lives. When each chosen flower type blooms in concert with those it is surrounded by the entire garden is enhanced tenfold.

Choosing differences in the non-personal aspects of life are unconsciously acted upon  daily. We need different food for good health, different shoes for different outfits and purposes, different textures and colors when we decorate our home spaces.

God creates a world filled with a cornucopia of differences. And when each is allowed  to bloom, we are all enhanced.

Celebrate the differences among each other; our differences in skills and abilities. When each individual blooms, we all bloom. Do not allow for any empty patch in God’s Garden of Humanity. Each was chosen personally by God.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”  Jeremiah 1:5
