California Poppies And Latana Blossoms
Photograph - Digital Photograph
California poppies add their brilliance to an amazing wall of blooming latana in this colorful floral scenery encountered on one of my recent walks.
A good many of us are going through a challenging time in life. Let us remember that God has the entire world in His capable hands, as the classic Sunday school song proclaims.
Although it might not appear like it on the surface, the King of kings truly has everything under control in His watchful eye ~ working out HIS perfect plan individually as well as collectively.
As has been said, the Lord will turn your scars into stars if you let Him perform in you His perfect work as the Master Designer.
Indeed, like this floral landscape, the Creator of the universe makes all things beautiful… in His perfect time.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says it best ~ here it is in the Amplified Bible translation:
“He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.”

Embedded in the top right-hand corner is the Hebrew acronym for "B'ezras Hashem" [ב ס " ד] meaning "with God's help". It is a reminder to me as an artist and photographer of my dependence on the Almighty, the Originator of all creativity. This is a similar acknowledgement used by great artists like Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel who signed their work with the Latin phrase, "Soli Deo gloria" which means, "Glory to God alone".
