Flowers to the Glory of God

Why do we forget and take things for granted? Perfect example . . . years ago, we had a tiny arrangement of flowers on our altar each Sunday because of cost, etc. My sweet mother-in-law was the first chairperson of the flower committee at Trinity. She has recently given up that position because she doesn't need to be climbing up on that altar to arrange flowers!! Anyway, we have a wonderful committee of committed persons who purchase the flowers each week - some from the wholesale florist, some cut from their own yards or the yards of friends. These persons - two at a time, I believe, then spend their entire Saturday mornings making an arrangement that brings Glory to God. The committee had a workshop several weeks ago and this arrangement was the one from their workshop. It was amazing and I love how the top of the arrangement points your eyes to the cross - indeed flowers to the glory of God.

Lisa, I loved this post! My mother-in-law made the arrangement last year at Easter for Contact service. It was a lot of work but so rewarding! I wish I had known about this meeting.
