My new obsession is orchids. I have found that, like my bromeliads, they are very easy to keep alive. It’s nothing I’m doing, they like my patio because it has a good combination of bright light, shade, and humidity. One thing that endears me to a plant is their scent. Most orchids do not have a scent, however, I’ve found a few that do, so I’ve placed them near me so that when I sit on my porch, the smell wafts through the air to my nostrils. I’ve placed two of them in this cute little holder that looks like a bicycle. Over the past few days, I’ve noticed that one of the baskets is skewed, which will make the plant grow crooked unless I straighten it out. This morning I decided that I needed to make that correction because I don’t want it to have any excuse to head in the wrong direction. All it took was one minor adjustment, and a tiny piece of wire to hold it in place. This lesson goes right along with a verse in Ephesians, encouraging us to set others straight if they are being skewed by sin, and not fall into that sin ourselves.
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. Ephesians 5:11
