As you can see...I walked right past the blue and purple specimens and picked out my favorite ivory plant from among a sea of poinsettias.
How is it that the poinsettia became the favoured flower of this season? It is symbolic of the 'Star of Bethlehem'...the star that was the guiding light for the shepherds and the wisemen and led them to Jesus.
"I am the Root and Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."
Jesus is our 'Bethlehem Star'...He is our guide day by day, if we only follow.
Let's not be too busy this advent season to focus on Him...that's what Christmas is all about.
