Only one reason.
For you and I, it’s the same.
God, gave us the day.
Psalm 118:24,29 (HCSB)
24 This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
29 Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His faithful love endures forever.
I have shared my peony blooms before and it will always be one of my favorite flowers. To me, it does remain lovely after losing its petals and only the seed pod is left. I have shown pictures of that before on the blog. But even with the beauty that brings to us, the fact remains that it’s here for just a short time. It is so wonderful that we can say and rejoice in knowing that God’s love remains, and is here with us forever.
Isaiah 40:8 (HCSB)
The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God remains forever.
John 3:16 (HCSB)
For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
