342. Thou art the Iris, fair among the fairest… ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Undulating ranks of Iris
Slimly holding their broad flat blooms
Like tripods of incense
Aloft towards the moist spearing
Of morning sunlight.
~Michael Strange

Iris, most beautiful flower,
Symbol of life, love, and light;
Found by the brook, and the meadow,
Or lofty, on arable height.
You come in such glorious colors,
In hues, the rainbow surpass;
The chart of color portrays you,
In petal, or veins, of your class.
You steal the full beauty of Springtime,
With your fragrance and sharp color glow.
~Edith Edwards

Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace!

    • Thank you, Michelle. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. As for the healing, I’m still waiting on on that, but a shot of cortisone in my knee has helped one of the issues some. I pray you and your baby girl have a very blessed Easter Sabbath. Hugs, Natalie 🙂
