Although much of this subtle communication will not be immediately recognized by a flower recipient, it is useful information to use in prophetic flower creations, drawings, paintings, or gifts. Interested in prophetic cooking? The article also contains connections made to a variety of herbs. For instance, chives represent usefulness; dill, powerful against evil.

In a statement shared with Fox News, Villa said, “I’m a pro-life woman. This year I chose to make a statement on the red carpet like I always do. I’m all about life.” I particularly like the fact that this young woman uses a beautiful format — truly stunning fashion style — to share a pro-life statement. Like the impact of a lovely painting, the visual memory of the message it carries will last far beyond the Grammy winners’ names.
