Though you might tire of my focus/fetish for the weather, for what it is or isn't doing ... I couldn't help but grab my camera this morning.

My step love-mom Sally gave me a beautiful orchid plant about a year ago. Blooming then, it soon stopped and has seemed, in my estimation, ready for the trash for months. But I dutifully gave it three ice cubes a week and in time new leaf appeared and a delicate stem or two.

Last week I noticed a plump bud at the end of a stem and last evening, voila! A brand new orchid bloomed to cheer a snowy January day. It gave me a little joy.

Isn't it just lovely?
Be joyful in hope. Romans 12:12
