2 years ago, a friend's mom gave me what she called a Spider Lily. I was excited about it because I had just planted several different kinds of lilies in my front flower bed, and I didn't have a Spider Lily. I couldn't wait to see what it would look like. It never occurred to me to "google" I didn't know what to expect.

Well, it didn't bloom that first spring. Nor did it bloom the next spring, though it did double! And this year, it doubled again. So, now I had 4 very pretty green leaved plants....but not one bloom. I asked my friend if Spider Lilies actually HAD a bloom...I was doubtful. She just laughed and said that her mom's were blooming :P

And, then, one morning last week, I woke to find THIS:

wow!!!! I'm thrilled!! THIS is a Spider Lily!! FINALLY!!!
And the next day, to my surprise, I found out that there are 8 blooms in 1 pod!! Amazing!!
so, now I have about 4 blooms.

And all of this made me think of how the Lord works in my life. He takes His time working on my foundation, making sure that I'm planted well. And before I begin to see fruit (the pretty stuff), I just may see the multiplication process. And to my surprise, the fruit will be MORE than I expected, too. I can't wait to see that!
