Thirty Orchids-In-Waiting

What a lovely and very exciting surprise I discovered today! I was watering the plants and went to throw a drink on the "apple orchid" plant. There to my wondering eyes I beheld loads of orchid buds-at least thirty (that's 3-0, thir-ty) of them! Not only does it seem a bit early for these but that is a LOT of orchids on one little plant!
 Last year this plant produced around six orchids so thirty just seems like a huge amount! Oh, but I'm excited. This was definitely my "pinkest rose" for today. :) (In case you're wondering, one picture was taken with flash, the other without, but both within a few minutes.)

I don't find a spiritual truth for EVERYthing I post on here but this one definitely made me think of how the Lord has blessings just waiting for us. Sometimes they are BIG and totally unexpected, too! We may not recognize them as such just yet, but they're there, just waiting to be revealed at the right time. What a loving and generous God we serve!

"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.
 But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit; for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God." (I Corinthians 2: 9,10)
