But this one?
This one was different.
It had been uprooted from where it had grown for 13 years.
A new home.
Would it even survive the upheaval?
Today it is flowering,
10 months on.
More than that it's flourishing in it's new environment.
Greater buds and blooms than ever before.
Signs of growth.
Of new roots being established.
It was a precious cargo
containing memories of lives
A thing of beauty.
Hardier than it appeared at first glance.
Thank you God for new beginnings.
For a place to settle.
For a world in which we love and are loved.
May I trust your heart when I don't understand your plan.
Now and for ever.
|Chris's parents bought us this chamellia|
|Its simple beauty brings me hope.|
|It blooms every year about this time.|
