Easter Lily

    Newer Older

    One of the most famous Biblical references is in the Sermon on the Mount, when Christ told his listeners: "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin; and yet..... Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

      Thanks you so much for the story of the lily. Being a Christian I had no idea! The photo is striking with it's glow.. the inside reminds me of the spirit and life.. the outside is world around us.
