Under the Shadow of His Wings

In my post entitled, "The Birth of a Hobby" I featured about how I became enamored with plants.  In that post I said I'll share about the plants I have in my coming posts. Well, it's been more than a year now and I'm sorry I haven't posted any sequel to that. I'm afraid I haven't been a good mother to my plants for months now.  Oh, I'm so guilty of not spending much time with them the way I used to in the past. I'm so glad the Christmas holidays allowed me to give them a shower twice a day. Every time I do, I couldn't help but notice the flowers in one of the flower pots, that remind me of a picture I took more than a year ago. Inspired by Psalm 17: 8 that says, "Hide me under the shadow of Your wings..." I wrote the caption. 

I'm not very good at names of flowers and plants so I really do not know the name of the flowers featured here, which seemed to be so contented as they enjoy the shield offered by the ferns against the scorching heat of the sun. 

"Under the shadow of Your wings...," this verse kept on playing in my ears every time I see these flowers in bloom. That prompted me to take a look at the whole Psalm 37 from where the verse came. Come, let us join David as he prayed with confidence at his final salvation from his enemies.
Psalm 17
I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God;
Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.
Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,
O You who save those who trust in You
From those who rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
From the wicked who oppress me,
From my deadly enemies who surround me...

By the way, would anyone care to tell me the name of the flower? Please feel free to write in the comment box below. 

Oh, I almost forgot... enjoy the rest of the holidays! I'm just getting my posts ready to be featured next.

  1. I don't know the name of the flower, but how beautiful! Psalm 61 also mentions the shelter of His wings. Thank you! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
