I admit it...

I'm hooked on roses...

I thought the pale pink ones would be my favorite among my roses...

but, this pink makes me take a second look

glad you're not blue...
because I think...
I like this pink

this is their true color

ah yes, Shadow dear...
at least, you have clean teeth

so, what did I do with the two roses above?

why, I couldn't help myself
they couldn't be allowed to wallow outside in their beauty all by themselves
the terra cotta vase was whipped out and filled with muessanda, mint...
and of course, the deliciously very pink roses

beautiful roses brings beautiful words of God to mind

the love the Lord Jesus Christ has for His church is captured beautifully
in Solomon's Song in the Bible

I am the rose of Sharon,
and the lily of the valleys.
As the lily among thorns,
so is my love among the daughters.
My beloved spake, 
and said unto me,
Rise up, my love, my fair one,
and come away.
For, lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;
the flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land...
My beloved is mine,
and I am his:
he feedeth among the lilies.
Solomon's Song 2: 1,2, 10-12, 16 

May the Lord color your day, or night in rosy sweetness by His grace.
