Phlower & Perspective – Iris Cathedral

Purple Iris – Flower of the Day

“I have had more than half a century of such happiness. A great deal of worry and sorrow, too, but never a worry or a sorrow that was not offset by a purple iris, a lark, a bluebird, or a dewy morning glory.” ~ Mary McLeod Bethune

This regal flower reminds me today of beauty lost. How horrifying it was yesterday to witness Notre Dame in flames and realize there was nothing to be done to save it. A reminder to make the most of every moment, so much can change in just a matter of minutes or hours.

      It is…time goes by so quickly, things change in hours. I intend to think good thoughts today, pray for those I love, and just keep doing the very best I can in all things.

  1. There is something special about purple iris. Regal….comes to mind.
    There is a sadness about the fire. This glorious work of art survived two world wars plus coutless others. It is impossible to count the cost.

      I just listened to the mid-day news and it seems some things are saved…maybe the organ they said. I hope they were able to remove more than it appeared at the start.

  2. Kathy,
    The purple iris is truly majestic. About the Notre Dame Cathedral, the details are shocking but it reminds us that we must not set our hearts on manmade monuments but focus on the heavenly ones that praise God. I have seen this Cathedral from the outside but was not impressed to tell the truth.

      Hi Susie, I have never seen the Cathedral. I agree with your words about manmade monuments. They all will pass away, but the Word of God stands forever. Thanks so much for the lovely reminder of what is eternal. Kathy
