This Bible passage came to mind, today, as I was checking in on a time-lapse of an orchid – 2 Corinthians 4:18 “For we fix our attention, not on things that are seen, but on things that are unseen. What can be seen lasts only for a time, but what cannot be seen lasts forever.” (Good News Translation) The reason why was that I have not yet observed any change in the orchid. I look at it, and it still looks the same as it did yesterday. However, as I scroll through the time-lapse images that are clicking away over the period of time, I can see tiny (minute, little, otherwise unobservable) changes. It’s like a glimpse into things not seen. There is also an anticipation of the flower that is to come.
