The Lotus Flower, cont.
Just thought I'd post a picture of my "Lotus Flower" necklace. It's not a very good picture, but it will help you to get the idea of how beautiful it is.
Also, I was thinking about how the "Lotus Flower" was a symbol of "rebirth" in ancient Egypt. Being "reborn" is a significant part of being a Christian. I know this term can be hard to understand, but it simply means "to become a new person". When we as Christians are "reborn", we have simply acknowledged to God that we are a sinner, and we ask Christ to live in and through us, giving us His strength to overcome these sins in our lives. When this happens, we are casting off our old ways, and taking on the characteristics of Christ, Who makes us a new person, as if we were "reborn".
