I couldn’t resist this shot, taken a few days ago. The Irises were bursting forth from their hidden places and the house next to us continues to be rebuilt…spot the scaffolding!!!
There are times for rebuilding in our lives. The Iris speaks of that latent potential within each of us, which with the right moment, moves us into a new perspective. The Easter story of death and resurrection is a powerful image of new possibilities in seemingly unfavourable moments.
The Irises proclaim that life is boundless and suprising and full of new possibilities. One moment the flower head was tightly closed and seemingly lifeless, the next, the growing bud devlops and then ‘breaks out’ into the light and time of promise.
Whatever is happening in your life today, always be prepared for a moment of rebuilding as the possibilities reveal themselves.
