The Miracle Of The Lilac Bush~

This is the story of our Lilac Bush miracle. This story began the last part of September of 2008. This is a repost with a picture that I took of the tree this week. 

 I was feeling sad that my Lilac Bush was dying. We had planted this bush in 2007. It was not growing well and had never produced blossoms.  It is the only bush that I had requested to be planted in our backyard. I have always loved Lilac Bushes. My Grandmother's yard had more than one Lilac Bush and I loved the fragrance of the blossoms. These bushes bring back sweet memories of  my childhood and my grandmother.  
When Willie our beloved cat of 18 years passed a way in the spring; we buried him next to the Lilac Bush with a few other flowers surrounding it. When our dear little dog, Dollie was ran over by a truck, we were devastated. We buried her next to Willie on August 15, 2008. At that point the bush was not thriving at all. By end of September the bush looked like it was dying; the leaves were turning brown and falling off the bush. One day when I was outside looking at the bush, I said a silent prayer that this bush could be saved in remembrance of our two pets that we had buried there. We had been watering the plants and bushes on a routine basis; but I promised then to water them daily.
Lilac bushes do not bloom in the fall; they only bloom in the spring and rarely in the summer. The first few days of October the Lilac Bush started to look alive again and about a week later it had blossoms on it
As I have told people of this miracle, they were amazed. I had some friends over to show them this miracle bush.They too marveled at this. I know that Heavenly Father answered my simple prayer and we were blessed to have this Lilac Bush bloom at an unusual time. I feel like this was a sign that our sweet pets were doing well. I have always believed in miracles; those sweet tender mercies from the Lord.

My Hubby and our Sammy

I love lilacs. They were my grandmother's favorite. This is a great Memorial Day post for me because I have such great memories of going with my grandmother to decorate the graves with lilacs. Thanks for the memory. Hugs.

Thanks for this beautiful post. I love that you published it on Memorial Weekend. I have such fond memories of decorating the graves with my grandmother. We always took lilacs. I do love their color and wonderful smell. Hugs!

Definitely a tender mercy, and evidence that even our smallest prayers are heard and answered.
