Hope for you
We planted sunflowers and zinnias in our garden this year. Still waiting on the sunflowers to bloom. However, the zinnias are absolutely beautiful. I love all the different colors and details that make them all so unique.
I recently decided to gather a few and make a bouquet. I’m not very experienced with this, so I searched YouTube for advice from so-called experts who give you all sorts of tips. (By the way, the tips were great!) Although my goal was to learn the proper or best way to put flowers together – like approximately how many you should use so that it doesn’t look too crowded and how many different lengths are best, there was a piece of information that stood out – the meaning behind a zinnia.
First, it’s a symbol of endurance. The reason behind this is most likely because It blooms from mid-summer until the first frost. Second, it is a symbol of a lasting friendship. Let me tell you what, with everything we have experienced the last few months — like all the restrictions due to COVID-19, the constant bickering about masks, people destroying property because they want justice, riots and removing statues, and the ongoing battle about politics, we all need what this flower stands for – endurance and lasting friendships!
The only thing missing is Jesus – and without Him, we have nothing.Thankful for the hope and peace that He provides when we put our trust in Him.
