Kwanzan Flowering Cherry tree we purchased from Nature Hills - to honor a wonderful - wonderful friend that we lost just before this past Christmas. This is “ Monica’s Cherry Tree “ - and I am just amazed by the surprise it’s putting out there!
Normally - you buy a tree - a young tree. You plant that tree. And for the first year - you expect nothing more than leaves on something that will look so spindly and frail - giving exception to blooms that can appear on young fruit trees after their first planting.
I expected leaves this year. But I had not even imagined to find these blooms coming this first year! This will be - surely - be one beautiful tree - just like the lady it was planted to honor!
I can't wait to see how gorgeous Moni's tree shapes herself!
Here's somethin' from another one of - " My Girls " - that I just hold so deep in my heart! I just love this woman! I had to pray for her for a long time - and pray hard. She needed to listen - to the words coming from her own gift from God - the same way I did for many - many years. They gave me strength. They helped me get through my life - day by day - step by step.
God answers prayer. When our hearts are in the right place - and we're praying for something good - that the world can benefit from - be nurtured by - He answers our prayers.
He answered prayers to help me get through life.
And - he answered my prayers for - this Lady! Thank You, God - for letting her find herself - again!!
