God’s Red Rose:

Butterflies above a rose

Red so brightly as it grows

God’s love is sent

As we repent

Feel it as it gently flows. Mac Stein

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork. Psalm 19:1

Here is a beautifully written story about God’s gift to us, flowers.

There is absolutely nothing in nature, for me, that speaks of God’s love like a deep, rich, red rose. Ever since I was a young child it has always been my favourite flower. Thorns and all. The exquisite English red roses my mother grew in my childhood garden, (in Australia of course), always took pride of place. Both in the garden and on display in our home.

She pruned and cared for them as if they were her special children. No insect was ever allowed near. Her care for them reflected oh! so truly her deep devotion and love for their Creator.

The perfume of these very, very rare and special roses spoke of the fragrance of God in His heaven. As the petals fell to the ground. I collected each and every one. Popped these treasures into small, fancy glass bottles. Mixed them with a little water and sugar. Magic! The perfume was more fragrant than any I could purchase from a French perfumery. These bottles of heaven sealed in glass were gifts to very special people. Yes, these roses were given as gifts from God their Creator. Through me to very favoured people.

When I grew. When it was time for me to have a garden of my own. Yes, deep red roses had pride of place. No, I did not have daughters. No, perfume was not made from their petals. Yes, they were prized as the gift from their Creator that they were.
