hope



This rose was somehow still growing in the bed that borders our walkway. I spotted it bright and undaunted against its frosty backdrop.

A quiet reminder that when the world is stilled and dark and cold, you can find the promise of spring ... if you'll look.

Thanks for the photo. I love that -- absolutely stunning. Jesus...the Christmas Rose. And today (Jan 6)is the liturgical feast day for when the Wise Men came to Jesus... :)

Between running out of baby wipes (I make my own) and crayon art on the wall, this was just what I needed to regain my focus.

Thanks, Shannon, for the fitting visual reminder!

This reminds me of the book, "Roses in December" which is about dealing with the grief of losing children/babies.

Since then whenever I see a Rose in the Wintertime, it reminds me that God can make bring forth enough light in the midst of darkness to bring forth a bloom! God is so awesome!
