"The human heart plans the way, but the LORD directs the steps." - Proverbs 16:9
It seems like it has a mind of its own. Most people call this flowering plant a "Christmas Cactus"; mine is a "Valentine Cactus". Normally, these plants bloom in December, hence the "Christmas" moniker; mine is blooming in early February, hence I call it my "Valentine Cactus". Admittedly, though, it is nice to see a blooming flower in the house at this time of the year. And not only do I have one "Valentine Cactus", but I have two of them!
We, too, have great aspirations and dreams. We plan our days to do this or that. But oftentimes, our plans change as the Lord directs and redirects us to more closely align with His will. While the intention may have been to bloom in December, the Lord knew that the flowers would be more appreciated in the doldrums of February.
