Spicing Up Life

I couldn’t believe my eyes–hibiscus blooms of various colors dotted the common green plant. Was this some sort of tropical miracle? Closer examination brought delight. Someone had made small slits in the plant’s leaves to welcome the stems of hibiscus flowers. There are millions ways to make life more beautiful!

 

My prayer response:

God, thank You for all those who see beyond what exists. Help me to reach beyond the limits of “normal.” Help me to bring beauty and joy to others.

 

Biblical touchstones:

God planted a garden in Eden… Genesis 2:8

For everything there is a season…a time to plant… Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

 

Invitation to prayer:
What prayers are emerging in your heart, mind, and body?
Pray them now.
