My favorite plant (I think) in South Africa is the “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow” bush, named for its three colors of flowers all on one bush–white, light purple, and dark purple. It is so beautiful; and when in flower, it gives off a sweet aroma right by our front porch. It reminds me of Hebrews 13:8 testifying that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. So I call it the “Yesterday, Today, Forever” bush.
I wanted this bush at our house to remind me of that truth. For example, He said He would be with us wherever we go (when we go into all the world), and He never changes, so that truth is mine even today. And forever!
We now have four plants–one is a “giant,” which means it should be covered with huge, lush flowers of the same variety when it grows up. For several years, our plants seemed to be duds; but the last three years, two have flowered during our springtime so nicely. The first year, Callie and I matched the bush, so we took a picture. Then in 2012, I tried to get some family photos out of it. This year I kept the tradition going with Callie and I, but she wasn’t very helpful.
