California Super Bloom
“A “super bloom” of wildflowers is hitting Santa Barbara County and Southern California thanks to fire-stimulated germination and above-average rainfall.
Some destinations in the state recently hit hard by wildfires are showing signs of regrowth and life, with golden ear drops, brightly-colored fire poppies and big flowered phacelia and other plants brimming.
These plants show abundantly following a fire, but will disappear within a few years as the community is revegetated and crowds them out, according to Flannery Hill from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.”

Blessed are those who can walk among the super bloom of God’s righteousness.
Dear brothers, is your life full of difficulties and temptations?
Then be happy, for when the way is rough, your patience has a chance to grow. So let it grow, and don’t try to squirm out of your problems.
For when your patience is finally in full bloom, then you will be ready for anything, strong in character, full and complete.
Put away the Christian-selfie-cam, instead pick up your cross and place your eyes forward only upon Jesus.

“California has sprouted superblooms before. What’s different this season is that visitors and Instagram influencers have turned the wildflowers into a backdrop for yoga poses, romantic cuddling, cute baby shots and even product placement. Lines of families, couples, kids and strollers snake along designated trails. Flower-print dresses are more common than hiking clothes.
Many stray from official footpaths, treading over delicate poppies and desert dandelions. The flower tourists also pluck them or sprawl on them while posing for photos.”

Hordes of false Christians are sinfully permitted into the church with their selfie-self Christianity. Such are the woes of Cultural Christianity.
But know this, that in the last days grievous times will come.
For men will be lovers of themselves,…
