Tulips originated in Turkey and Persia, with people wearing the tulips in their turbans. Tulip means “turban” in Persian. The Turks consider it a symbol of paradise on earth.
When I was a little girl, my first experience with flowers were my neighbor’s tulips. I picked some for my mother and she made me take them back, and apologize. I learned a valuable lesson that day, not to steal, and also to apologize. I did a lot of apologizing growing up. ;-)
I never lost my attraction for these bright colored flowers. When I was old enough to grow my own, it was a delight to study them one day for this painting. This was a profound spiritual experience for me, mesmerized by the awesome design and details of God’s creation. I never liked math growing up until this tulip opened my “eyes” to the beauty of math! I could see the math in it; 6 petals, 6 stamens, patterns of the same shaped design on each petal, the reproductive system, anatomy, etc., all the details that makes it a tulip.
I had to stop right then and there to thank God for his awesome beauty and design. Painting this tulip became a spiritual moment, a time to worship and thank Him for this gift to me. It is as though each flower is a kiss from God. I could see His love pouring out through a simple flower. Everything He designs is backed by and through His love, the most powerful, creative force in the universe.
I looked up the meaning of tulips and guess what? Tulips are the classic flower of love with the red tulip meaning true love. While the world seeks love in all the wrong places, God’s true love is all around us, blowing us kisses through His beautiful creations.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. John 13:34 KJV
