Our frangipani tree has proven once again that the potential from within is stronger than the elements outside. Being a tropical plant ….. it surprised us to see it flowering in June in the New Zealand winter! We usually take it to a warmer position as it gets colder ….. but this year it is getting too big to move so we left it. We can’t always protect ourselves or those we love from harsh circumstances ….. but we can trust that God has given us and them the strength and courage to go through them. It’s the testing of our faith that produces perseverance!
