DwellingsChristmas Cactus
The Christmas Cactus has such a beautiful bloom.

For most of the year we keep these plants on the screen porch.
By the middle of October tiny little buds begin to form
and just before Thanksgiving we bring them inside.

Each blooms a different color.

Each is stunning.

And each year I am captivated by their exquisite beauty!

I am in awe of our Wonderful Creator
as I sit and gaze at these beautiful blooms.

I am in AWE as I ponder how delicate,
how intricate,
and how masterfully they have been made.

And then my heart is reminded that so am I.
And so are you!

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14

My heart is filled with 
at this wonderful Christmas time!

Blessings to you my friend!

"The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy."
Psalm 65:8
