I'm so excited, my Christmas/Easter cactus is starting to bud. I never know what to call my cactus, because the few times it has ever bloomed, which for some reason is NOT very often, it has bloomed around Easter time. I think only one time has it bloomed at Christmas.
This year it looks like I'm going to have much of my cactus in bloom...YEAH!!!! I think the trick this year was that our home was cooler, and I had closed the drapes so that they were just slightly open so that my african violet would get some sun while we were gone to Texas. My cactus was in a darker cooler place for a month.
And, my african violet was in full bloom when I left, I'm just happy it wasn't dead when we got back home after being gone a month. I actually have a watering system for this plant that works great, and as you can see there is one flower starting to bloom again.
Seems like a lot is starting to bud, bloom and blossom around here. I've been thinking a lot lately about something I had heard from one of the speakers at the Women of Faith event I had gone to last fall.
The speaker talked about the......Formula for Contentment
I've been thinking about an old friend that I had lost track of, I knew the general area where she was living, and believe it or not she lives not that far from me.
I had thought about getting in touch with her again after so many years, but I didn't know or believe if she'd want to hear from me.
So, I did something and I called her, which is the do part.
It must have been God's will because I found her name and number when I googled her and when I got a hold of her we talked for a long time. We caught up with each others lives (as much as we could) and in some ways it was like we never missed a day.
This formula can really be applied to anything that happens in our life.
Lots of things budding around here, flowers and old friendships.
