Golden Lamp Stand
Rousing, early spring almond blossoms.
Breaking through, sprouts on dry ground.
The almond is a well-known symbol of resurrection because it is the first tree to flower after winter.
Almond blossoms are very beautiful. The cups on the six branches of the menorah (lampstand) in the Holy Place are fashioned after the almond blossoms.
Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these flower.
What is this flower?
Many years ago I had this flower in my garden but then I only know it’s a species of Persian cyclamen.
Recently, a sermon I heard mentioned this flower and so – this is “Solomon’s Crown”
Solomon is King David son, the 3rd and last king of Israel. He is the greatest king in Jewish history and one of the most legendary king in the world. The period where Israel is under the governance of King David and King Solomon was the golden era of Israelites history.
King Solomon was the first builder of Holy Temple in Jerusalem. He has wisdom that is above all man, great wealth and authority that cannot be measured.
But still, even all Solomon’s glory, he was not clothed like one of these flower.
This flower has a crown-like shape, a crown that has life. Jesus has no form nor comeliness but HIS life is holy and glory.
I was also reminded of a story of a king who was given an opportunity to make a wish. He wish that everything he touches will turn into gold. When he touched a flower in his garden it turned in to gold immediately, when he hug his beloved daughter, she turned into gold too.
To bring out my message, beside that flower with life, the rest has turned into gold.

Helix Nebula Nautilus
Like living fossil has never change
Man, time and space traveller
Moving in infinity
Made In Heaven
You are the potter I am the clay
Man from earth, woman from bone
Tear down to rebuild
Renew and rebirth
I in you and you in me

Wheat and Tares
A metaphor from nature
Tares are weeds that looks like wheats during early growth stage. Pulling out tares at early growth stage would result in wheat being pulled out as well.
It is better to wait till harvest time, as wheats bend low from the weight of its grains, and tares stand tall as it bears no grains.
Harvest time is the perfect time to pull out the tares and bind them into bundles to throw into fire.
Against All odds
Mandate from heaven
Stretched to the limits
Rewards of bliss and abundance

Sound of Joy
Laughter of child as she swings between her parents
Bell of liberty
Pealing loud and mighty
Only when held rightly
Not too tight
Not too loose
Chen Zhifan said in the article “Thank God”: “There are too many people to thank, so let’s thank God!”
Lilies of the field, delicate as lips
Sparrows chatter on window lattice
White egrets in paddy fields, wild and free
Handmade by God, unique and cherished
A life of peace, our inheritance and blessings

White horse ridden by prince in Fairy tales
1998/Oil/53x 65 cm
Fairy tales always have happy ending. What we all dream for.
Young maiden’s feet in glass slippers
The prince and princess dancing to
music from the mystical music box
in a glamorous castle ballroom
and they live happily ever after. The End.
