Brief


There is so much going on in the garden at the moment.  This is the beautiful flowering cherry in the afternoon sunlight. Her time is brief but lovely.

Reflection:
James 1:9-11 (The Message)
When down-and-outers get a break, cheer! And when the arrogant rich are brought down to size, cheer! Prosperity is as short-lived as a wildflower, so don't ever count on it. You know that as soon as the sun rises, pouring down its scorching heat, the flower withers. Its petals wilt and, before you know it, that beautiful face is a barren stem. Well, that's a picture of the "prosperous life." At the very moment everyone is looking on in admiration, it fades away to nothing.
