Thanks to Alice Harper sharing Phyllis Gibson’s post of the Yulan Magnolia also known as Magnolia Liliflora. With a little help from Photoshop, the flower looks like a bird.
When we take the time to look and to think, we realize that we do not live in an ordinary, accidental world. We are surrounded by God’s extraordinary which needs no enhancement.
The extraordinary is to be seen in the universe and world God has created for us. It is to be seen in the words he has given us in his Holy Book. The words to live by and the promises of all he has done for us through his son, Jesus. It is to be seen in the extraordinary lives of those who trust him and strive to live according to his will.
In all of this, we see a glimpse of how extraordinary heaven will be.
