A Volcano Explodes in This Small Costa Rican Town--And Everyone Thinks It's Beautiful!

What if the next time it rained, flowered petals poured down from heaven instead of wet droplets? Or instead of hot lava, volcanoes erupted with the fragrant petals of roses and lilies? If such a delight were to ever happen, little corners in the world would look a lot like this small town Central America. It was covered in 8 million flower petals.

This volcanic eruption of flower petals in Costa Rica was staged as apart of a Sony advertising campaign. But that didn’t take away its beauty.

The local residents pitched in to help the video team collect the most colorful flower petals that they could find in the entire region. It took them two weeks and the petals totaled 3.5 tons! That was surely a fun and delightful task.

Isaiah 40:8

The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever

 

 

Psalm 24:1-6

The earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters. Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah
