Winter Blooms

Flowers in the dead of winter— how blessed we are.

c e hollis

Amaryllis are a joy in the winter. They come as bulbs in a pot with soil and a cardboard lid. Remove the lid and water. Set the pot in a sunny place. Water a little each day and watch the leaves and stem grow, the bud form and swell, burst and open four lovely and amazing blooms.

This year I got several bulbs: a couple of red ones, an orangey red, and a white. The creamy white one had two stems and produced eight elegant doubles blooms. Wow!

I love to watch them. It’s like watching a caterpillar knit itself into a cocoon and emerge a butterfly. A miracle change that leaves the soul bursting.

I had an earthly father who loved me and loved to give me pretty things. God is my Heavenly Father and He is glad you send such gifts also.

Every good gift and every perfect is from above and comes down from above, comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness or shadow of turning.

James 1:17
