Everywhere we turned, we observed tulips bursting with color. We stood astonished at all the beautiful shades of color that God chose when He created them. We felt as if the tulips were welcoming us with all their glorious splendor. What an array of beauty was displayed as we watched their colorful heads gently bending towards us. This spectacular day, we were visiting Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands.
The tulip actually has an origin from Central and Western Asia, and it is the national flower of Turkey. As we discovered, God actually created over 3000 different varieties of this particular flower. Tulips are supposed to signify a declaration of love. It was very interesting to see all the different types. Some were even rough-shaped blossoms simply swinging in the wind. It would be so easy to spend hours amongst these beauties and get lost, while being caught up in their magnificence. And…we did! Even though we had a map, we still couldn’t seem to find where we were going…the quantities of tulips were unbelievable! We were lost, but what a place to be lost within!
A tulip is the world’s third most popular flower. Photographs of our own North Carolina tulips were used for the April Welcome banner. Welcome is defined as “a kindly greeting, as to one whose arrival gives pleasure”. This welcome banner will provide a month or more of beauty to greet your congregation and visitors in any location where you want to add color and a feeling of hospitality. And, while we’ve identified this banner for the month of April, it does not contain the name of the month on the banner, making it versatile for use at more variable times.
We have designed welcome banners for each month, and each banner has a specific theme and usually a “behind the scenes story” that goes along with it. Our banners are designed for you to hang on the wall or to display on a banner stand. We want to give God the glory for all He has created. The April Welcome banner was designed using His beautiful creation, the tulip.
