Resurrection

DSCN1131

This beautiful flower is a Resurrection flower.¬† In the early spring, clumps of long foliage appears for several weeks before wilting. After several months, a single stalk shoots up almost overnight and a lily-like pink bloom opens.¬†¬† They remind me every year that though we don’t see the flower for a time, it’s alive and coming back in full force and beauty.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.¬† He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.¬† Do you believe this?”¬† ~John 11:25-26

Hold on to this; believe it; believe in Jesus.  And you will never die.  Why?  Because He loves you, He made you, and He wants you to be with Him forever.  This is hope; this is life; this is resurrection.  Blessings, Lisa
