On Orchids and Our Lives


Purple orchid slowly blossoming

Orchid plants have such lovely flowers. Their blossoms are a beauty to behold and as a bonus, could last for many weeks.

I was repotting some orchid plants from church weeks ago. As I cut off the old roots, I saw that rot has penetrated the root system. It occurred to me that even with such beautiful blossoms, the roots can be damaged so severely without any indication of the entire plant's poor state.

Could it be similar to our lives? We can live beautifully on the outside without indication that we could use some help on the inside.

I believe that we need to simultaneously take care of our spirit as much as we do our mind and body. With the extra time we have on our hands, let us find ways to make sure that all these are in healthy harmony so that our lives will bloom even more beautifully than the most exquisite orchid, inside and out.
