My Mom's Christmas cactus is in bloom this week. This plant has been blooming once or twice a year for at least 10 years but has never bloomed so close to Christmas. What a special treat for me! I thought it would be nice to photograph my Mom's plant with my Mother-in-law's Nativity figurines. She passed them down to us a few years ago. We treasure family connections around here so this seems to be a perfect match.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. - Isaiah 9:6
