I was shocked to come home and find that all of the irises I photographed just yesterday had either shriveled up or fallen off. Glad I got a picture when I did... I thought of the title for this post, and then realized that it's part of a proverb. I was trying to figure out why it was so familiar, and then remembered that my mom inscribed the verse in one of my first Bibles.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. (Proverbs 31:30)
