Christmas Flower – The Poinsettia

poinsettia

According to a Mexican legend, one day near Christmas a child who was too poor to buy a present for the Christ child picked a bouquet of weeds from the side of the road. When the child reached the church, the plant blossomed in beautiful red and green flowers. Beginning in the 17th century, monks in Mexico included the plant in their Christmas celebrations.

Envision If You Can
Envision if you can
The wonders of the world,
Blossoming forth into a beautiful plan
Of oneness and love,
Harmony and peace,
Beauty and grace for all to have.
When will this be, this day of change?
And who opens the eyes for one to see
The mysteries of life in eternity?
Go within and you will find
The stirring of One who will open your eyes.
Will open you eyes for you to see
That the time is here for eternity.
