Scentational Story: Lily of the Valley
Otherwise known as the May Lily, or Our Lady's tears, the Lily of the Valley has an origin steeped in tales of sorrow and hope. The very first lilies of the valley sprang from the soil where the fallen tears of Eve had soaked into the ground as she and Adam left the Garden of Eden. Later, this same flower sprouted out of a ground wet with the tears of Mary, crying at the base of her son's body upon the cross. Like the rainbow, the flower represents a promise of hope and a return to happiness.
