I promised a photo of African mistletoe, so here it is! Could the colors be more perfect for the season?
This plant grows within sight of my kitchen window, and I’ve noticed it and photographed it before. A couple of years ago, I discovered that it was a type of mistletoe, and just weeks ago, I grew curious enough about it to get really close. I discovered intricate, delicate flowers! You can read about the medicinal value of its leaves if you google “African mistletoe.” Since this particular plant is growing in a lemon tree, it can be used to treat diabetes, according to “folk medicine” in Nigeria. Fascinating. Our Creator is indeed amazing!
One of my favorite writers is Roy Lessin (Dayspring cards/gifts), so I’ve included one of his beautiful compilations here. I believe it will bless you as it has me.
No matter where in the world you are as you read this, my hope and desire for you is that the reality of the presence and sufficiency of Jesus will fill you with complete peace and joy.
