The Cherry Blossom

“Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.”
Genesis 9:3
The Cherry Blossom

One of my favorite trees is a Japanese Cherry Blossom and this bloom is from a Yoshino Cherry Blossom in the middle of October. This particular tree blooms twice a year, but many cherry blossoms only bloom once. When they bloom, they are filled with a bright, white glow for about a week. As quickly as the blossoms come alive, they slowly float off with the gentlest breeze. The beauty is extremely short-lived, but it’s amazing while it lasts. In the same sense, life is short, but it can be as beautiful as you make it. Just as it says in Genesis 9:3, “Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything” God has given us everything…just the same as the delicate cherry blossom. Are you making the most of your bloom? Will you be ready when the breeze comes? Your life may be dry and bare just like the cherry blossom for 50 out of 52 weeks of the year, but all you have to do is hang in there…the seasons change and your bloom is worth the wait. Have faith and be strong.
