This book has 80 pages. On each page, there are one comforting sentence based on a Bible phrase or a personal prayer and one flower picture. To get all the different kinds of close-up flower pictures, during the course of over one whole year, carrying my Canon EOS Rebel XSi digital camera and my Samsung Galaxy S5 cell phone, I visited various flower shops, flower shows, parks, people’s front yards, department store parking lots, shopping malls and went to several botanical gardens in Southern California, such as The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden in Arcadia and Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont, multiple times to take thousands of flower pictures and only the prettiest and the most appealing pictures are chosen to be used in this book. All the backgrounds of the flowers are changed to dark or black color by using PhotoShop photo editing software tool.
This book is for everyone who feels sad, depressed, unhappy or simply bored, not just for Christians, Catholics or religious people. By viewing the pages, hopefully you could feel a warm flow of peace, tranquility and happiness radiates from the bottom of your heart and bring you new hope, certainty and optimism to face your problems, dilemma, threat or the sense of hopelessness. It might even be shining an invisible bright column of colorful lights toward you to alleviate your burden, pressure and negative impact. It would be immensely helpful if you calm down and take a deep breath before you view the pages of this book. God bless you!
