“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!” Luke 1:45
Just as Elizabeth spoke these words to Jesus’ mother, Mary, so are we blessed when we choose to believe that God is faithful to His promises. We may not understand the process He takes us through between a promise made and a promise fulfilled, but we don’t have to. He is God and He is accomplishing far more than our eyes can see on this side of our promises.
The orange Poppy is symbolic: Orange is often associated with fall, the season of harvest. Waiting on God’s promises is much like waiting for a harvest. Orange is also the color of fire which signifies one being tested and proven. Finally, the color orange represents boldness, intimacy and companionship with God.
