Don't give up - blossom!

Hard to tell, but this tree is blooming like it was spring in November. Why? We have suffered under an extreme drought and a hard baked summer with more than 70 days with plus 100 degree temperatures.

I look at this tree and see it as if the blossoms are a testimony to life. Fighting against lack of water and heat, it's saying - "Yet, I live!"

1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

2 Corinthians 4:8-10

8We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

Though the world beat against you-- rise, stand, and proclaim Jesus as Lord.

We have His promises. His sure word of Truth. Eternal Life.

Don't give up - blossom!
