It is out of the dead and the barren from which life originates in nature. To defy all odds to show the miracle of life. I have had a plant for over an year. Which over the last year had slowly been drying up despite all that I did. Over the last couple of months I had given up hope on it and left there to dry, pitying my lack of ability to do the one thing that God had given to take care of. Everyday, I walked out of my apartment, it served me as a reminder of what I could not do.
Over time I had hardened my heart and would avoid looking at it. Couple of days after my return from India, I saw this plant sitting in the corner of my apartment quietly fighting the battle to sprout back to life; telling me never give up hope… never stop believing!
