A Thought From My Heart

Little cherished plant, where are you? Have you survived the harsh cold winter?
Sigh, there you are! I'm so thankful. You practically came up over night.

A miracle from somewhere deep inside your stem...tiny fresh and new!

As you quickly grow, I see that other little creatures are finding shelter among your blooms. The web crosses from one stem to another. Is the little creature drinking dew from those tiny little folds were I see drops of condensation? Yes right there in your "big" heart at the top, in the tiny white fold. Now tell me please, how does condensation get in there?

You inspire me to think...about the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapter 49, verses 15 and 16 NIV, where it says...

... Can a mother forget her baby...and the child she has borne? Though she MAY forget, I WILL NOT forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands...


Be blessed today!
Love, Rachel
