Grasping Christ's Love

I found this particular wildflower at the side of the road leading up to St. Mary's Glacier. I had never seen it before. Anybody know what it is? I was so taken by the blossoms because they seemed to just reflect light in an amazing aura surrounding themselves.

I thought about Ephesians 3:17-18:

I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

It is perhaps easier to look at a mountain or ocean and believe that God's love is high and deep for us. But I have found that it is equally as amazing to see His great love for us in those incredibly crafted butterflies, bees, and blooms. His love is reflected in the massive and the miniscule.
Oh, how He loves you and me!!!
