ENUMCLAW, Wash., Jan. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- Can you learn about God from a flower? Are there lessons on eternity to be had from weeding or plowing? Absolutely, says former professional flower grower Jean Coleman in her new book, "I Met Him in my Overalls."
"I Met Him in My Overalls" shares Jean's glimpses into the essence of Almighty God from the most mundane of perspectives--her flower garden. While growing flowers for commercial marketing, parables from God's Word were revealed in the midst of the blooms around her knees, such as:
• Flower seeds, like Jean herself, spent time in darkness before sprouting into the light
• The weeds crowded her flowers, blocking needed sun and threatening their survival, like life's busyness distracts her from the Son
• Emerging flower buds need to be pinched off, like extraneous branches in our lives need to be pruned
• The adversary we face in life is as real as the beetles that ate her zinnias
• She chooses flowers for their beauty and value just as God chose us, deeming us worthy of the sacrifice of His son
Her plan was to grow flowers to sell, but God's plan was to grow her. Jean Coleman speaks with transparency of her revelations from the painful injury that ended her commercial gardening career, as well as regrettable childhood memories that found their resolve in the garden metaphors she had witnessed.
Mrs. Coleman lives with her husband on a farm and delights to share her spiritual produce, as well as her perennial flowers, with others. The Coleman's have three married children and a growing bouquet of happy grandchildren.
