My wife loves plants and has all kinds growing around our yards—front, back, and 2 sides. Though we live inside Philly, it’s like we live in the country. Flowers give magnificent beauty, and BTW, Richard Gunther is both artist and author of these images. He gives me full permission to share. Did you know Jesus is the BRANCH? The tree of David was cut down, but Jesus is the BRANCH growing up from the stump (Isaiah 11:1). Want shade and protection? Trust the BRANCH! He is the real TREE OF LIFE.
