On a Fairhope balcony in the years 2002 and 2003, a single pot of greenery bloomed, the blossoms were delicate, fragrant and wedding day white. Lack of attention – down right neglect – in 2004 and the little pot gave no blossoms. Yet in 2005, the little pot would not be left behind, she came to Satsuma and there she sat and she sat. But in time the meager stalks, by then reduced to bulbs, found a permanent home and her greenery flourished and flourished, but only the greenery – no blossoms, no fragrance, no wedding day white.
And this year, 2007, again the greenery flourished and even though the bed of ginger lilies had more than tripled in size and number, we wondered will the blossoms ever return.
Galatians 6: 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Yesterday I digitally captured My First Satsuma Ginger Lily. I hope you can open and enjoy the picture. The Fragrance is back!!
Is there something in your life that you have been laboring over, praying over, hoping it would yield? Keep on tiling, keep on praying, keep on giving God time. Galatians 6: 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
And if you have been transplanted from a place, a situation and you seem to be doing okay, the greenery is there, but the ‘fragrance’ is missing – give God time. You can bloom anywhere He has you – in His Time. Galatians 6: 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Father, thank You. Thank You for Ginger Lilies that bloom and thank You for Your Divine Lessons in the lilies. And I pray for any soul who reads today that feels out of place, transplanted from one place to another and who is still waiting to feel at home, give that one courage and hope today. I ask You to give Your People the will to be encouraged today, the will to trust You, the will to believe You, the will to wait upon You. And for these Zela. Janie B. W.C. The Ellis Family. Bev.
