The Dove Orchid

I learnt something fascinating today! There is an Orchid from South America, which goes by the name of the Dove Orchid or Holy Spirit Orchid (Peristeria elata). The reason it is called this name is because if you look carefully at the flower it resembles a dove (which in the bible is a symbol of the Spirit). Take a look at the picture attached on today's post - you will see an example of one of these flowers.

It is truly amazing how God reveals himself to us through his creation. As we go about our work and lives today, let us be aware of the signs of the Living God.

Matthew 3:16 - At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.

John 1:32 - Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him.

Living in grace
