A bouquet for Jesus…thank you Corrie Ten Boom!
“…Cliff Barrows referred to a comment she had once made during a visit to his home: “When people come up and give me a compliment–‘Corrie, that was a good talk,’ or ‘Corrie, you were so brave,’ I take each remark as if it were a flower. At the end of each day I lift up the bouquet of flowers I have gathered throughout the day and say, ‘Here you are, Lord, it is all Yours.'” At the end of this tribute in Denver, after an evening full of emotional memories, looking back over a full eighty-six years, Tante Corrie was presented with a large bouquet of yellow roses. As the crowd stood to applaud her, she lifted the bouquet to the Lord and I knew she was saying to Him, “Lord Jesus, this is Yours.”
