grace like camellias


Grace is like my camellias...

when everything is dead and dying
defeated by frost and driving winds
it buds and blooms and bursts
baptizing with color a colorless world

"For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men." ~Titus 2: 11
My Jesus, you are such grace to me.

I keep checking to see if mine have bloomed every day ( for some reason mine are late bloomers, I'm sure it has something to do with my black thumb ). Think of the extra joy I am going to feel now when they do. You are named so correctly You are Joy. Thank You
