I thought it might be nice to dream of something that blooms in the
summer on these cold and icy days.
I ran across these pictures of this remarkable cactus.
It's called Cereus and it only blooms at night.
It is very fragrant. It smells like a sweet lotion.
This is the pod which starts to slowly open before nightfall.
Slowly opening. Notice it's now dark.
A little more.
And finally this beautiful flower is open.
It's around 11:00 p.m.
Isn't it gorgeous?
And it smells so sweet!
What a lovely specimen of God's creation.
God is so magnificent!
You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart.
