LESSON OF THE WHITE PHACELIA

THERE'S A LESSON to be learned from a flower called white phacelia. The sign on a nature trail in America's Northwest describes it this way: "White Phacelia thrives on dry rocky slopes where high winds and shifting soils are a fact of life. It is often surrounded by only rocks and gravel, growing alone in conditions too rugged for other plants."

Sometimes during difficult times—when we're unemployed, have difficulty finding or keeping a home, or are struggling with soaring prices for fuel—our own lives might seem suddenly transplanted to dry rocky slopes and rugged conditions. In such circumstances, we can consider that the white phacelia survives regardless of harsh elements, and that God, its Creator and ours, will take care of us, too.
