The Annual Tulip Tirade

They say flowers will bloom anywhere, and perhaps that is true, but not every flower can survive in a crack in the sidewalk. Sometimes even flowers need a fresh start in a new spot in order to bloom and this year she has three!

Every year I am amazed, and every year she teaches me something new. I am growing more and more certain she is a precious and unusual gift from my Father in heaven, a gentle encourager in difficult times. She is showing me that when hard blows knock almost all the life out of you, there is still hope. With a bit of love, encouragement, and fresh soil, one can come back strong and beautiful.
