The Rose, the Lark and the Sun
When God formed the rose, He said: “Thou shalt flourish and spread thy perfume.” When He commanded the sun to emerge from chaos, He added: “Thou shalt enlighten and warm the world.” When He gave life to the lark, He enjoined upon it to soar and sing in the air. Finally, He created man; and told him to love. And seeing the sun shine, perceiving the rose scattering its odors, hearing the lark warble in the air, how could man help loving?
(1 John 4:19) We love Him because He first loved us.
