My mom came to visit this weekend and the time we spent together was really special. Mom was kind enough to sponsor 2 new Hibiscus bushes, one with a beautiful double yellow flower, named moonlight and one with a red flower named red lady.
The challenge was getting moonlight and red lady into the ground. It became evident very quickly that our complex was built on rocky terrain. There were so many rocks that had to be dug out just to make a whole big enough for the plants.
Amidst all the rock I hit a frightening white object. Thoughts of skeletons came to mind so it was a huge relief to finally figure out that they belonged to the roots of my giant Strelitzia. Phew!
It amazed me how this plants roots had managed to find life by slowly working its way through tons of rock. That's how our spiritual roots need to be, tough enough to anchor us down yet, supple enough to manage difficult terrain.
How do we develop roots like that? I'd love to say you could do it just by focusing on faith or love for example, but that simply would not be true! The only way is to remember that our spiritual life must be balanced. We must be willing to work on our overall spiritual growth.
I will talk more about that in the days to come. God bless!
