“In the Bible, flowers are often used as symbolism for beauty, growth, temporal things, fullness, and more. The gospel can be seen in all of creation. Flowers are a beautiful reminder of our glorious God.” (Fritz Chery, BibleReasons.com/flowers)
Much like Thrive, this beautiful lady is busting with love and joy and the promise of dreams fulfilled. The rich jewel-like colors and bountiful flowers speak of abundance and joy. This is for your mother or grandmother; for the special woman in your life who supports your dreams and is pouring love into your life daily! This is for that special friend, the one you can count on to commiserate with you but at the same time will give you a down-to-earth pep talk to shake you out of the blues. This lady also has a little attitude. She’s not concerned about what other people think of her, she has her own style and she’s bold. She’s blooming where she’s planted but she just might pick up and plant herself elsewhere if she’s not thriving.
Bloom, as a verb used without object, means to produce, or yield blossoms; to flourish or thrive. As a verb with an object, it means to cause to yield blossoms; to make bloom or cause to flourish. (Dictionary.com).
Hosea 14:5-6 “I will be like dew to the people of Israel. They will blossom like flowers. They will be firmly rooted like cedars from Lebanon. They will be like growing branches. They will be beautiful like olive trees. They will be fragrant like cedars from Lebanon.”
Luke 12:27-28 “Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?”
Isaiah 35:1-2 “Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days. The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses. Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy! The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon. There the Lord will display his glory, the splendor of our God.”
Psalm 96:11-12 “Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice! Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! 12 Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy! Let the trees of the forest sing for joy.”
