This Christmas Cactus is about 10 years old. I took this picture about a week ago and must say today there are many more flowers on it. But when I wonder why I have taken a liking to this cactus I feel it must be because it is God's word to me. Don't think I'm losing my mind I'll explain.
My Cactus blooms a few times a year. The main two times is Christmas and then Easter. I know Easter is not the same time every year it could be in March or April but my cactus seems to know when Easter is. These are two very important times in the life of Christ.
Now think of the plant. Without flowers it is just a green vine not something that would drawl ones eye to it. Then one day you see the buds. You watch it closely till it blooms into something beautiful. Then next thing you know day after day new flowers are appearing. We are those buds. When we are walking closely with God to those who are viewing us closely they see something beautiful. They should, if we are living our lives for God and He is beautiful. It should drawl others to want to bloom into that beautiful flower. They want to be that bud that blooms.
So you have the reasons I like my God's Cactus.
