We had to cut down a large dead tree about a month ago. It was right beside this beautiful purple hibiscus tree and I was afraid it wasn't going to survive. But, here it is showing off and I love the purple color. I don't know if this picture represents how the color really looks. It is purple. And as an art teacher, I think about what purple represents--Priesthood, royalty, kingship, strength, and power. As a Christian, I think about it as a symbol of the sovereignty of Christ. Needless to say, I love this small purple hibiscus tree.
