When Oranges aren't Orange

The house we're currently living in has an abundance of citrus trees in the garden.  The trees are now laden with fruit and we're enjoying the freshly squeezed juice.  These fruit are also an endless source of confusion to us.  You see in Uganda oranges aren't orange and lemons aren't yellow.  If you leave them long enough they do turn somewhat orange and yellow but then they're past their best. Not being botanists we find this all quite baffling but then as our Ugandan friends know we're easily confused. The longer we're here the more we realise how much we have to learn and how much we need the wisdom of the One who knows why in Uganda oranges aren't orange.
