The Saguaro

On a trip to Arizona, we saw a lot of Saguaro Cactus. When this plant is wounded, like its top is knocked off, baby plants grow from the stump. When birds make a hole and nest in it, the hole gets closed with stuff like tar to completely surround the hole. This whole piece can come out and it looks like a boot. The rest of the cactus is sealed and retains moisture. These cactus don't even get to branch out till they are seventy years old. God put a lot of time and effort into seeing that a saguaro cactus survives, even though it may be way out in the desert and never seen. Surely He will care for us, His children. We have protections, too. Think how marvelous our bodies are - their healing properties. God is certainly an awesome God. Nancy


  1. Nancy, this info about the Saguaro Cactus is really interesting & comparing it to the human body & God's plan for us is insightful! Here's another thought, He may also be encouraging us to keep seeking Him for our 'good works' for the Kingdom of God no matter how old we are.
    Your creativity is really coming through with your blog. So happy for you! PTL!!
