My garden

 

My garden, is full of roses

Each one is special as can be.
They are magnificent, yet fragile
Until I bring them Home to Me.
 
"So many beautiful colors and sizes
The differences make them unique.
I will tend to My roses and teach them
To be strong and not to be weak.
 
"Delicate are all of the petals
Of the rosebuds as they hide
So many wonderful treasures
That are a part of them deep inside.
 
"With love and with some patience
These tiny buds start to bloom.
And the treasures that they hold
Will be in full splendor soon.
 
"The petals are so very beautiful
As they soak up treasures from above.
There is a sweet scent of harmony
As I'm tending My garden with Love.
 
"With the bright Son Light of Jesus
The Living water each and everyday,
Beautiful roses reach toward Heaven
As they grow and mature along the way.
 
"At last, when they are at their peak
And their petals are opened wide,
Treasures that they give
and receiveIs something that can't be denied.
 
"Then they'll return up to Heaven
They won't have to reach any more.
They will be with the One who loves them
With treasures of peace and loveforevermore.

Rose Within

 
A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully, and before it
blossomed, he examined it. He saw the bud that would soon blossom
and also the thorns. And he thought, "How can any beautiful flower
come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns?" Saddened
by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and before it was
ready to bloom, it died.
 
So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. The
God-like qualities planted in us at birth grow amid the thorns of our
faults. Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the
defects. We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come
from us. We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it
dies. We never realize our potential.
 
Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else
must show it to them. One of the greatest gifts a person can possess
is to be able to reach past the thorns and find the rose within others.
This is the characteristic of love, to look at a person, and knowing his
faults, recognize the nobility in his soul, and help him realize that he
can overcome his faults. If we show him the rose, he will conquer the
thorns. Then will he blossom, blooming forth thirty, sixty, a hundred-fold
as it is given to him.
 
Our duty in this world is to help others by showing them their roses and
not their thorns. Only then can we achieve the love we should feel for
each other; only then can we bloom in our own garden.

God's Rose

 
I took a lengthy walk today thinking I was alone.
I walked so fast I did not see the trees, the sky, the stones.
Something inside began to warm a place within my heart.
A voice began to speak to me- and it began to start.
Although the footsteps I could hear were certainly my own;
I know there was another set upon the open road.
It was as if another one was walking by my side-
whispering words into my ear which made me softly cry.
 
"Slow down and look around you, child. There's so much here to
see. Did you notice that small nest above in My glorious pine tree? Did you see the sky, the vibrant sun and feel My breeze upon your face? Have you heard the singing stream or seen the eagle fly with grace? Did you notice all the colors I have painted on the land? Have you looked at all the mountain tops which stand proud and grand? And what of that small child, who plays with such delight? Or, the sounds of that child's laughter in a world so full of fright? Have you seen the meadow gently sway when My wind blows through the air? Did you see the violets in the field - or not notice they were there?"
 
My steps began to slow until I stood so very still.
It felt like God had spoken- was this part of His will?
Or, was it my imagination running wild like the night?
It felt so real, so warm and true - I knew I couldn't fight-
His message to look and really 'see' the wonders all around.
I realized my feet were walking upon more than simply 'ground'.
 
A tear made a path down my face and I smiled at the sky.
I knew my tears were ones of joy and my heart began to fly.
With every step I saw something as if for the very first time.
The babbling brook; the soft green grass; the beautiful sunshine.
I found myself wandering as my steps began to slow.
I bent over and finally took the time-
to smell God's glorious rose.

God In A Rose
 
One of my very favorite flowers is the rose,
but I never had much practical knowledge about roses until I began to look for some "rosy" thoughts to share.
I learned that Columbus discovered America because of a rose. On October 11, 1492,
in the Sargasso Sea, one of Columbus' crewmen picked a rose branch from the water.
This sign of land renewed their hope for survival and gave them the courage to continue their journey. The rose is the official National Floral emblem of the United States since Nov. 20, 1986.
It is the state flower of 4 states and of Washington, D.C. According to one legend,
the rose was born from a smile of Cupid,
but we know it is one of God's finest gifts to humanity. Its combination of beauty and fragrance are seldom surpassed by any other bloom.
A rose has been fashioned by God,
who was not content with making one kind of flower. No, God, in His amazing creativity,
has made probably thousands of varieties of flowers, each one unique.
How much like His creativity in fashioning people! I'm thinking of you as roses today,
each one beautiful in your own way. Some are sweet and fresh little rosebuds;
some in the full bloom of maturity;
and some of you may even feel as though you are wilting today.
Like the rose, you have been created by God,
made to fulfill a special purpose.
You are much more precious to your Creator than any rose.
And He knows and understands each
and every one He has made. Let's take a few minutes to look at three distinct features of a rose.
1. A rose is dressed in finery provided by the Creator. Man may fashion a rose of silk or another fine material, but no fabric can compare with the petals in which God dresses His roses. He desires to dress us in His finery, too. When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, they became aware of their guilt. They tried to cover their guilt with leaves around their bodies, but God saw right into their souls. God had mercy, and He provided a covering for Adam and Eve. He dressed them with animal skins. You and I have sinned against God also, but God, in His mercy, provides much more than a mere covering for us; He offers to dress us in His righteousness--His goodness -- and make us clean and beautiful in His sight. The Bible says that Jesus, who had never sinned, became sin for us -- on the cross -- so that we could be made the righteousness of God in Him. He exchanges His goodness for our sin when we believe in Him and accept His gift of forgiveness.
2. Not only is a rose dressed in God's finery, but a rose has another wonderful attribute. Does anything smell as glorious as a rose? When my roses bloom, I look carefully to make sure there's no bee hovering near; then I bend down to get close -- nose-to-rose-close -- and I inhale slowly and deeply, savoring the heavenly aroma. Did you know that you can have the sweet aroma of Jesus Christ in your life? The Bible says Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God in payment for our sin. God the Father was pleased with Jesus as He gave His life for us on the cross, and His obedience is likened to a fragrant offering.
The more time we spend with Jesus Christ, getting to know Him better,
the more we will resemble Him;
we will begin to bear His fragrance.
In the Bible, we read that through us,
God spreads the knowledge of Christ;
that, everywhere we go,
we give off a sweet scent rising to God.
This is how it is in our relationship with Jesus --
If we immerse ourselves in reading His Word;
in knowing and following Him;
we will pick up His sweetness, --
the fragrance of Christ --
and it will be noticeable to everyone we meet.
3. The third feature of the rose seems undesirable at first glance. We look at a rose -- breathtakingly beautiful -- and we can't help but wonder:
Why would our Creator-
God make such a wonderful thing as a rose,
and then put thorns around it? Anyone among us who has any knowledge of Bible teachings will answer that thorns and thistles
began to grow on the earth
after Adam and Eve sinned.
Yes, that was the beginning
of the presence of thorns, but there is so much more to consider.
The contrast of rose and thorns is puzzling
when we observe it,
yet the thorns serve to highlight the delicate, wondrous beauty of the rose.
More than that,
there is a message hidden
within the rose and the thorns.
When we understand that message,
we will appreciate not only the exquisite flower,
but also the thorns that adorn it. You pick a rose, drawn by its beauty,
but suddenly your finger is pierced and you experience a stab of pain,
while a drop of scarlet blood appears on your finger. Thorn -- Pain -- Blood.
You see the parallel -- the hidden message --
and you whisper a prayer.
"Thank You, Lord, for enduring the pain of your crown of thorns, for shedding your sacred, precious blood on the cross to provide forgiveness for my sins.
" You have begun to understand the value of the thorns.
You have seen God in a rose. There was no hint of beauty in the crown of thorns He wore,
as His sacred head was bleeding and the crowd cried out for more;
No loveliness in Jesus as He hung on Calvary's tree,
but the cross He bore and the thorns
He wore make Him beautiful to me. Now, listen and learn the rest of the message of the thorns.
God, in His graciousness, allows the presence of thorns in our lives.
Thorns of all kinds intrude into our everyday living.
When we encounter thorns, we need to focus on the One Who can help us to bear them.
He has promised to draw near to those who draw near to Him.
He says his strength is made perfect in our weakness.
He tells us to cast all our cares on Him because
He cares for us.
When you give your thorns to Jesus,
He will carry you through; and you will become beautiful through your trust in Him. Like a rose, your beauty will be enhanced by the thorns around you.
May you recall these things the next time you see a rose: God's love for you in your uniqueness, The transformation of being dressed in His righteousness, The fragrance of Jesus from knowing Him well, and the hidden message in the thorns -- They make Jesus beautiful to us and they actually enhance our lives and make us beautiful when we entrust our thorns to Him. When you see these things,
you have seen God in a rose.

A Rose
 
A rose is a special flower
That has it’s own unique power
Just one simple rose, not a pile
Can make the saddest person smile
A rose is one of God’s most beautiful creations That fills the heart with warmth and sensation When the fragrance of a rose
Reaches the tip of your nose
It fills your heart with delight and cheer
Knowing those you love are near
Today give a rose to the ones you love
The sweet smelling fragrance
from heaven above.

Roses and Thorns

 
We all have thorns in life.
 
Our hurts, sorrows, regrets, bitterness, bad habits, guilt, 
people who hurt us or make us unhappy, or people we 
haven't forgiven are our thorns.  As long as we do not 
let go, we do not forgive, we do not forget any dark area 
in our lives, they remain as thorns in our hearts.  But if 
we let go, forgive others, and forgive ourselves, our 
thorns can become roses.
 
There are no hopeless or permanent thorns. 
So make thorns roses.
 
At the end of the day, will you be sleeping on a bed of thorns, 
or on a bed of roses?
 
At the end of your life, will you be counting with God, 
more roses than thorns?
 
It's your call.
 
It's your choice.

"Then they'll return up to Heaven

They won't have to reach any more.

They will be with the One who loves them

With treasures of peace and loveforevermore.
