This is proof that God exists! If something this beautiful can spring forth in a couple of weeks from an ugly brown bulb stuck in some dirt, that is proof enough for me!
I wish that I had taken a picture of it when my friend Holly gave it to me, and the only thing that was beautiful about it was the pot with the big Christmas bow tied around it. Little by little it grew, first just a cute little green sprout pushing through the top of the bulb, (once again I wish I had documented all of the stages in photographs), and then there were two green sprouts, that started to shoot upward with amazing speed like spears shooting toward heaven. Then, the other day, these huge blossoms burst out, shocking everyone in my family! Especially me, because I have a knack for killing plants of all kinds.
Thank you Holly, for giving me such a wondrous gift of gloriousness! It truly has had me in awe of God's creations, all through the holidays!
