“What are you doing there?” Hubby asked while he was maneuvering the car out of the garage.
“Are you praying?” he further questioned so I simply answered, “I am meditating”.
For about an hour, I sat in front of a pot of purslane which I transferred to a larger pot over a week ago. I bought the cuttings from a vendor at the wet market. They are of different colors of yellow, light pink, fuchsia, orange and white. I just can’t wait to see them bloom. This morning, while I was watering the plants, I noticed that they finally had those buds ready to burst open. Purslane or pig weed are locally know as Vietnam Rose.
I took a chair and waited until they unfolded one by one. What a lovely sight. And I was thinking, I was given another chance to witness a miracle – a simple unfolding of a bloom. Nature makes us appreciate everything about life, the simple truth of knowing that there is Someone up there showing us the wonder of creation, right before our eyes.
I am humbled Lord,
I am truly amazed.
These flowers simply fascinate me
No one else could paint such
a beautiful canvas about life
