Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (backdrop edition)


When I would collect a wild-flower bouquet for my mom, I wouldn’t just get a couple of flowers, just by themselves. It just didn’t seem right. Indeed, what florist does that? Not even one. There’s always a backdrop, a setting, providing a structure, a method, a way to appreciate what’s going on.

Above is just merely a mere seed group of some grass. But this is just the kind of thing that goes with the flowers. The flowers would fall over, perhaps right out of their vases if it wasn’t for some of this kind of mere background stuff.

You can guess the analogy already. It’s not just the spectacular stuff that Jesus might permit us in His providence to accomplish here or there in His grace, but it’s always about faithfulness in all things, the background of the “flowers.” Then the backdrop is as much the flowers as the flowers.
