How Fragile

...roots that reach
  down to the water,

 and with leaves
  that are always green.
They bear fruit every year
and are never worried
 by a lack of rain.

Our lives are like the orchid...a hot house plant that needs specific care with just the right light, feed and water.  It takes a master horticulturist to raise this beauty because it is so fragile.

Our lives are like the orchid...tender, needy and reaching for the Light...dissatisfied with our earthly existence and longing to be fed with more than we get from our life here in this world.  We need strength, nurturing and love and are always seeking.  

The world will fail us.  We will continue to search but will not find it here unless...
we look to what God left for us when He took His Son to be with Him...
His Word.
Oh, what comfort for my fragile soul.
