Beauty like never before….The substance of things not seen……I had a friend who had an after-death experience. He told of his journey to heaven and described some of the things he had seen. One of them was flowers of indescribable beauty. I can hardly wait for heaven, for the New Jerusalem. The glory we see now is temporal, but the glory then will be eternal. Every time I see the beauty in creation, It reminds me of Creation, the Creator and Eternity.
I also like the deep red in this flower. It reminds me of the ultimate sacrafice of Jesus life on the cross. Without this eternity would not be possible for us.
