Day 11: Lily flowers

This is is my eleventh post in a series of seventeen.  17 days of remembering Lilly's 17 months of life as we approach her one year angelversary.

Kingdom:  Plantae
Order: Liliales
Family: Liliaceae
Subfamily: Lilioideae
Genus: Lilium

True lilies grow from bulbs and have large prominent flowers. 

Lillium Firecracker.
Kingdom:  Heaven
Order:  Christian
Family:  Hollowell
Subfamily: Trisomy 18
Genus:  Homo sapiens

 True Lillys are created by God and large loving hearts.

[Jesus speaking] “'So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?'" - Matthew 6:28-30

We have fun with Lillian's nickname of "Lilly."  :)
