May~Lily of the Valley
I have always been drawn to this flower and also the song titled the same. Maybe it was an unheard messege from God. My youngest daughter's birthday is this month and she reminds me so if this flower. So delicate and precious, yet strong and determined to thrive at the same time.
I love the words and the messege of this hymn. It was written in 1881 by William C. Fry for the Salvation Army.
I've found a friend in Jesus,— He's ev'rything to me;
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul!
The "Lily of the Valley," in Him alone I see,—
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole:
In sorrow He's my comfort, in trouble He's my stay;
He tells me ev'ry care on Him to Roll;
He's the "Lily of the Valley," the Bright and Morning Star;
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
