Buds and Blooms-IMGP8601Buds and BloomsOrchid blooms and buds on Easter Morning

Karen loves orchids, as do I. 

For years, we tried to cultivate orchids, always failing in our task. 

This plant has us celebrating Karen's skills and persistence. It has continued to bloom for over two years now. 

Life has many seasons. This orchid reminds us of the beauty of nature, that not every aspect in our lives is in our control, and that persistence and hope are worth our effort. 

On this Easter Sunday, I rejoice at all life, that I believe is redeemed and made whole by the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. Even if you don't believe, see in these beautiful blossoms, the hope of new life that nature brings about, season after season.
