Wolmyeongdong Fragrant Flower Festival
People consider flowers to be the most beautiful part of nature. Compared to flowers, God considers human beings to be the most beautiful part of all creation. However, of all the gifts in nature God has created, flowers bloom and wither in the blink of an eye. Before they wither, we should appreciate the mysteriousness and joy of a fully bloomed flower.
Every year, Wolmyeongdong Recreation Center holds a Flower Festival in Wolmyeongdong, God’s Natural Temple. Each flower festival will last for a month. During that time, participants can give glory to the Trinity who created the natural world we live in.
Flowers are not the only highlight of Wolmyeongdong. World class rock landscapes also surround the Natural Temple in a majestic fashion. When you come to this place, you will experience a world of wonder. You will see landscapes that you cannot see anywhere else in the world.
Wolmyeongdong also contains natural mineral springs that God has blessed us with. To this day, thousands of people have drunken from it freely and been cured of all kinds of diseases. Even people from foreign countries continuously visit Wolmyeongdong to drink from it. The fragrance of this mineral water will seep into your body whenever you drink from it, and your health will soar.
The fragrance of human flowers
All 60+ places the Trinity has designed have become flowers that contain deep stories. Those who have listened to their stories have been moved to tears by the fragrance of these flowers. In particular, there is one great flower in Wolmyeongdong. It is the world’s rarest flower, and it gives off a fragrance that cannot be bested. Even though it is not a flower we can see with our eyes now, we can hear about it through stories. Its fragrance fills Wolmyeongdong along with the scent of pine trees.
When you come to the flower festival, please be sure to realize about the fragrance of flowers. Like bees that fill their honeycomb full of honey, I hope you will fill your head with the fragrance of flowers and produce eternal honey by walking on the path of life forever with joy.
Don’t just look at the flower but look at the beautiful human flowers that our Creator’s greatest masterpieces. Then their fragrance will fill your heart as well. I hope that you will make this visit an opportunity to show off the flower called yourself as well.
I pray that the festival will be filled with the fragrance of heavenly flowers and that your body, mind, and spirit will also be filled with the love of the Lord God and the Holy Son.
