Nature surprises us and teaches us all at the same time, causing us to slow down, appreciate life, to share and to grow!
So sound the trumpets! Let all know of the uniqueness in the world at every turn, in every person, in every flower and every grain of sand. These thoughts came to me when I first saw this amazing cascade of trumpet flowers hovering over pink flamingos. I was in awe at this site, the glow of it, the perfection and placement of natural beauty.
Fascinated by the shape and glow of these trumpet flowers, I decided to do some research. Here are a few impressive highlights about trumpet flowers and trumpets to inspire you and share with a friend.
Folklore and science talk of this trumpet flower as a toxic plant. In South America, it is called the Queen of the Night - the scent can paralyze or tranquilize a person. I guess that is what happened to me . . . although at first site there was no smell, perhaps it was a spiritual connection to nature that mesmerized me.
It is also written that the trumpets will sound at the end of an age, a triggering of a moment in time that should not be ignored or dismissed. Well, interestingly, I was in the middle of a 7-day extensive juice fast. If you have ever fasted, you know everything becomes clear and crisp. I saw a moment in time that somehow connected all things. Color and the way every person sees is unique to them and their past experiences. Impressionist painters knew this, they captured the light of day at different times. When they painted that light, it captured a moment in time.
According to Revelation 8:1-2, the angels will sound the trumpets after the breaking of the seventh seal. Some Christians say that this is what you will hear at the second coming of Christ.
So, sound the trumpet, slow down and listen, see color and form in a different way. Your knowledge base combines experiences and creates a perfect perception, a moment in time.
