I took this picture recently. Coincidentally, it hasn’t bloomed in the past year and is just now blooming at the time of the devotion being published. God’s time? I think so! I’m so thankful to my neighbors Mike and Lynn for the thoughtful gift. When I see the orchid blooming, I think fondly of my dad and mom, and it always makes me smile. But it’s also a reminder that God’s time may not be our time. God’s time is perfect and will generate our own “life-blooms” when God is ready.
Compassion is the heartbeat of humanity. When we are living in our truest, deepest selves we know how to care and connect.”
