This is a rain flower. It only comes out after a rain. It is growing in a rock with little soil. I saw it while walking the dogs last night. We had something out of the ordinary happen here in Texas this week. It’s called RAIN! We are in stage 2 drought restrictions and so it was so exciting to see several inches of rain in our rain gauge. This little flower didn’t stop and think, “Maybe I don’t have enough soil to bloom, I’m in a rock for goodness sake!” No it just bloomed. Tiny but powerful, it bloomed and encouraged my heart. It gave me HOPE! While continuing up the hill I saw a few other hopeful things. Another thing growing in a rough place.
A neighbor down the street’s daughter’s car in parked on the street. She is there because he dad has days to live. Hanging from her rearview mirror is a hand beaded cross. It is a sign of her hope in God. A HOPE that when her dad dies, he will live again with Christ. I walked home with a song of praise in my heart! God is a God of HOPE! Yes He is, yes He is!
