Just look at those wicked thorns !! They always make me think of the CROWN OF THORNS our sweet Jesus wore and it reminds me of all HE went thru for you and for me.
Such tiny little flowers and such HUGH thorns....I wonder if I keep putting it in a larger pot if it will continue to grow larger and larger; like the way HE puts us in different places in our lives that make us grow stronger in HIS spirit.
Every thing I've read about this pretty plant says the flowers will be tiny in size and few in number; like the Christians of God's great world. We are growing in number by leaps and bounds. It just thrills me to death each time I see a new bloom; the same feeling you get when you see a new Christian being born in the love of God. I have the urge to give this plant twice the fertilizer it should have so there will be many more of the beautiful, red flowers. I'm afraid I'll kill it, tho, so I try to refrain from using too much. Just like when I want to PUSH someone towards God but I know if I take it slow and easy, it will happen, through the Glory of God. I do love this plant, thorns and all.......I do love our Saviour, through the good times and through the bad.
I love all of you, too!
