Forget-Him-Not

God created heaven and earth and all that therein is.  God created man Adam and out of the rib of the man He created a woman Eve. Everything in the Garden of Eden was perfect and peaceful. Then came God’s greatest adversary, satan, disguised as a serpent and beguiling Eve to eat a fruit of the forbidden tree. Adam too ate a fruit of the forbidden tree. By disobeying God sin and death came into this world. God and men were separated.

However God took care for of separation. A second Adam came, Who did full fill the law of God till the very end. Jesus Christ Son of God and Saviour carried the punishment for our  sin and died on Calvary’s Cross. After three days Jesus Christ has truly risen and ascended to the Father in Heaven. Known as Ascension Day forty days after Easter Sunday. The Redeemer conquered sin and death.  The separation from God the first Adam caused is removed by the second Adam. This means that we can go through the great Mediator to the Father for a Life Everlasting.     

Do Not For-Get-Him, Jesus Christ.

The word “daffodil” is first used in 1548 and comes from the Dutch word “de affodil”  that translates to “the ashfodel”.   This word refers to a variety of herbs of the lily family that have yellow- or white flowers and bloom on tall straight upward stems. (according to Merriam Webster Dictionary)

The daffodil is produced and grown in Europe, however, the lovely flower is cultivated widely and can grow in most regions of the United States.

“I wandered lonely as a cloud- That floated on high o’er the vales and hills,- When all at once I saw a crowd,- A host of golden daffodils; -Beside the lake, beneath the trees,- Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”    William Wordsworth

Daffodils when caught by a breeze it is as if the flowers are waving to you.

Sunflowers

When you put  sunflowers in  a vase put them in water that has room temperature. It keeps the leaves longer fresh. Every other day I refresh the water, rinse off the stems and add just a little vinegar.  Not only stays  the water nice and clear but it also avoids a musty odor. Refreshing the water every day I do  with all the flowers I put in vases.
