Tulips did not come to the attention of the West until the sixteenth century. They were rapidly introduced into Europe and became popular during Tulip mania. Tulips were often portrayed in Dutch Golden Age paintings, and have become associated with the Netherlands, the major producer. They are very popular throughout the world, both as ornamental garden plants and as cut flowers.
Different tulip colors carry distinct meanings:
Yellow—cheerful thoughts
White—forgiveness
Purple—royalty
Red—perfect love
Yellow—Joy

A tulip bouquet—elegance and grace.

Tulips bring me joy!!

 

Grace

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Grace is a favorable disposition towards someone. It is a voluntary act of goodwill. God has extended His Grace (favor) to us that we should exemplify the same in dealing with others. They might not deserve it, but neither do we.

 

Fear

There are several definitions of fear, mostly concerning negative emotional states; but, my favorite is the profound reverence and awe toward God. This fear denotes a positive regard for the righteousness of our Creator, realizing that we are unworthy except by His Grace. As the recent song declares, all other fear is a liar.
