The Rose That Grew From Concrete

Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it
learned to walk without having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared. Carlos Drummond Andrade

Jeanine’s article proves how life can not only survive. It can thrive in the most unlikely of places.

O Lord, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom have You made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures. Psalm 104:24

You are the Lord, You alone. You have made heaven, the Heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them; and You preserve all of them; and the host of Heaven worships You. (Nehemiah 9:6)

Our worship. Our praise for God Almighty. For God, our Creator God today. Focuses on the wonder of life. On the miracle of life to not only survive. Life at times thrives in the most unlikely. In the most inhospitable conditions and places on earth. “Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, majestic in Holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?” (Exodus 15:11)

Scientists and all those with minds that wonder. Are fascinated by the ability of life to adapt. To not only live but appear to enjoy living. If you, like me, are drawn to documentaries on such topics. The source of such wonder is never-ending. “And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen extraordinary things today.” (Luke 5:26)

As technology allows mankind to dive ever deeper into our oceans and seas. As metals and alloys protect us from heat, acids and other chemicals. People
