Christmas Cactus – 18 January 2007
Our Christmas cactus plants start to produce buds around November
every year and have pretty red flowers through December and into
January. Then the flowers begin to fade. Since the plants that bloom
are all near windows, turning their pots seems to encourage more buds
to form on the side facing the sunlight, and we again have blooms into
All of these plants, except for two, are old and from cuttings. The
two exceptions are hybrids we bought several years ago.
I read that Christmas cactus is really an epiphyte, a plant that
grows above ground on trees, and that it is native to the tropical
forests of Central America.
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
