This is the time of year for the Caladium Festival in Lake Placid, Florida. I had never been, so I wanted to see what it was about. It’s nearly two hours from us, but we did it anyway. We stopped on the way to pick up my mother, because plants are her thing too. None of us knew what to expect, in my minds eye, I thought there would be fields overflowing with caladiums, rows and rows, but that’s not the case. It was just like any other festival, with craft venders, artists, a car show, and a few farmers with their caladiums and bulbs. We drove two hours and spent about twenty minutes there. I did get some bulbs, and have already planted them, I’ll be having a show of my own soon. The point of me telling you this is, we never know what to expect when we venture into something new, especially when we’re stepping out for Jesus. What’s in our minds eye, is never what unfolds, but we still step forward out of obedience. Step out and do something new for Jesus today! Let Him guide you into your next adventure.
If you like caladiums, I planted forty five “Tapestry” plants that will be bursting from the ground soon. I planted the bulbs (seeds) and will reap a harvest that will be a feast for the eyes!
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
