*Here I am , Father
I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty and Your wonders.
It opened in a way I never saw a tulip open!
Fully in splendor!
For by Him all things were created--
in heaven and on earth,
the seen and the unseen,
whether thrones or angelic powers
or rulers or authorities.
All was created through Him and for Him.
He exists before everything
and in Him all holds together. ---Colossions 1:16

A bee came by and did the same, so I moved out of the way, as he, the bee,
had work to do.

On one branch there shall be three cups shaped like almond-blossoms, each with calyx and petals; so for all six branches issuing from the lampstand. --Exodus 25:32, from Parsha Terumah

You shall make bars of acacia wood; five for the planks on the one side wall of the Tabernacle, five bars for the planks of the other side wall of the Tabernacle, and five bars for the planks of the wall of the Tabernacle at the rear to the west.
