My African Violet

never ceases to amaze me.

I purchased this plant about 2 years ago and it originally traveled in the motor home with us.  It has been faithful to produce this kind of beauty even when I had my doubts.  You see my plant can at times look quite pitiful in my opinion.  It seems to be so fragile and so shallow in its roots.  But then I begin to see its sprouts of new buds, giving me hope and that hope does not disappoint.

I think life for the Christian is similar in nature to my plant.  Personally I can feel on some days pretty pitiful, fragile and without much depth of roots.  But God the master gardener is always at work and in the right time and season there will be new growth and new beauty and this fact this hope does not disappoint.

Psalm 138:8
The Lord will [a]perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

Hugs and Blessings,
