Be still in the moment.
Listen, look at life.
10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! NKJV
As freezing temperatures approached, I cut the stem and brought the blooms inside.
While walking in my yard yesterday and I noticed an amaryllis bulb that had grown and produced a strong stem with a richly colored bud.
I knew it was getting ready to open into a beautiful amaryllis flower. This is the first year for one stem to grow by itself. There are many more bulbs at the same spot that have not grown yet. I was fascinated by this one amaryllis fulfilling its purpose, all alone, yet strong and beautiful. Hence the poem below:
Man born of woman
is short of days and full of trouble.
2 He blossoms like a flower, then withers;
he flees like a shadow and does not last.
My first post of the new year. How wonderful to start a new year on this blog. Thank you to all my followers and supporters.
As we sail through life.
The waves may be rough and high.
If Jesus is our captain,
Peace will abide.
16 Rejoice always! 17 Pray constantly. 18 Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
