God is SO GOOD ALL THE TIME! Our God is so good, I just thought I would share our Family Rose Garden thought with You. Kent is a deep Red Rose to me and many other colors through each year. Little did I know that we would have other roses in our life. Who knew that we would have five BEAUTIES? Abba Father God did!!! Where did the years go? It has sped by very rapidly. It was like just "yesterday" that we were getting ready to share we were with child with Mya, Tia, Faith and Emily; then She ("HADASSAH ROSE") blessed us on Christmas Eve '08 and now she is already ONE~!!!
"Haddy" (referred by) her sisters said with JOY would be "our nickname" for her. Not minding really all that much because it was their contribution to her "name" ;-D. She has been one of the joys for and of our family. Haddassh is the fifth 'rose' in our family flower garden and her fragrance is very sweet. The colors are so wonderful and vibrant in our garden. They continue to bloom with each pruning. From the eldest ready to bloom again and be transplanted in her her own garden to the youngest pruning & taking steps to bloom in the home garden and while quickly becoming on the "GO". Roses as a garden we have found are truly hardy. I Love our Rose gardens: The girls and the one outside, with all my heart. They are all so different; their Character as well as their personality is a reminder of that every day. Yes there are some thorns but the stem is sturdy. I guess the stem is YahWeh, the thorns the obstacles that come and go and the blooming is Jesus Christ; while the fragrance is the Holy Spirit moving through us daily. ;-D Can't you just smell them?
Roses. Enjoy the walk and "Stop and smell the Roses" in life. It is well worth your time!
Our Garden grows with radiance of COLOR! What do you think they may be? Or even better yet what does your garden smell and look like? I LOVE OUR "ROSES" even when there are thorns in our walk of life (it is like "Doing Hard Things" - Harris Brothers), for that is part of a garden. Well I get to stop and smell and gaze at them FREQUENTLY and for that I am truly blessed and thankful for . . . ;-D.
Here is a tid bit about Roses and their meanings I thought you might like. ENJOY!!!
