My friend gave me a Kalanchoe baby this week. This little tyke is bursting with hope that the roots will touch soil. (They did)
Here's the macro of the unique silver gray 'skin' .
My wife has been discourged this week with some unsettling medical news. She said for me to pray and look for signs of hope. So I made this little pond for her (plus I needed to look at some water during this seemingly endless drought). As I was arranging the rocks, I found this...
I had gathered these rocks from all over the yard and had picked up a plain white one (look back in the previous photo...it's the one directly below the white triangular stone ).
As I arranged the stones, you can imagine how startled I was to find a message under this rock! God works in mysterious ways. I told my wife I had found some hope while working in the garden.
Hope you find some hopeful signs in your garden this week. New flowers, new baby plants, new butterflies, and maybe the hope of precious rainfall here in the South.
