Bulbs and Blossoms by Amy Le Feuvre (PDF)
The children, Roland and Olive, came from India to visit their four aunts. Old Bob grew flowers and liked to show them to the children. He kept one flower pot in his window for every family member whom had passed away, as a remembrance of their resurrection. As old Bob said, "Life out of death, my dears. That is the lesson of those lilies. The good Lord has never failed to teach me from them every Easter." Important verses are 1 Peter 3:18—"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit;" and Revelation 6:11—"And white robes were given unto every one of them, and it was said unto them that they should rest yet for a little season."
