A rose is a beautiful flower. It’s one of the most beautiful flowers in the world to me. I cant tell you how many roses I’ve received in my life or given in return to express love, appreciation, and adoration. Each rose was just as special and precious as the one before. With it array of colors, shapes, and aromas, its splendor is enhanced by its long stems and vibrant green pedals. We mustn’t forget its thorns and thistles, which does not diminish its beauty in the least. They only increase our appreciate of how magnificent and unique the rose really is. No matter how thorny its stems are, my rose stands above, and in spite of its thorns.
I think to myself… no wonder the book of Solomon calls Jesus, “The Rose of Sharon.” Yes, that’s my rose, and He’s also willing to be yours. Pick Him. Adore Him. Breathe in His fragrance and come alive to His love, grace, mercy, and salvation.
“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys” (Solomon 2:1 KJV)
I will keep on thanking God for the fragrance of His saving love. By Hertistine Washington/keeponthanking.com
