Here’s a Shrimp Plant Sharon and I bought at a Flea Market a few years ago. I don’t know what the scientific name is, but the colors and curl do resemble a shrimp. Something different, at least around here.

And different can be a good thing, especially if it means different from the world around us. Caleb demonstrated that when he and Joshua were the only spies who came back from the Promised Land with faith that they could succeed because God was with them.

But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it.”  Numbers 14:24

  1. Good post! And the Bible says “different” is a necessary part of Christian life, too.
    “Be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2
