Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.All glory to Him, both now and forever! Amen.

—2 Peter 3:18

I don’t even know what kind of flowers they are…

Having purchased them several months ago, I have had the opportunity to watch these little flowers grow taller. 

Lately, however, I have noticed another change that is occurring at this stage of their development. 

As the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting cooler, some of the blooms are becoming a deep pink color. 

Returning home from work today, I placed the items I was carrying from my car on the sidewalk so I could photograph the vivid petals. 

Such beautiful color developing at this later stage in the plant’s life!

As Christians, we should be growing. 

Growing closer to Jesus every day. 

Changing. 

Growing “taller” in our faith. 

Displaying new and vibrant “colors” of love and compassion as we grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus.
