This is a soldanelle. Even when it’s buried under a crushing weight of ice and snow, it grows. It stores the sun’s energy in its roots, then creates a bubble of warmth around the flower bud as it keeps pushing through the ice until it breaks into the sun again.
I pray your experiences with God are so wonderful, transforming, and powerful they become a constant atmosphere of warmth and light in and around you, enabling you to break through every wall of ice you encounter in your life.
