…HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND EVERYONE!
While reading a fellow blogger’s post this mornig, I was reminded how a rose, when it’s withered or crushed, gives a more beautiful fragrance, more so than before that state. It doesn’t become a different flower because it’s withering. And although the physical beauty is diminished, the fragrance on the inside is enhanced and more dominant in this new situation, if you will.
No matter the pain and suffering we may endure in this life (nobody is immune), if we are steadfast within ourselves, the person GOD has created us to be, and not compromise who we are during a low point, OUR FATHER in HEAVEN gives us beauty for our ashes. Our beauty, our fragrance that is on the inside of us, comes out because of the anointing which is upon us, while HIS HANDS are resting upon us.
I’m so happy and thankful that I read that post this morning. In a few words, I was reminded of so much! That we are all truly valuable and loved.
Apparently, this is turning out to be a reading night, and I must say that I am always learning something fresh and new, getting inspired and moved by the “verbal portraits”, which make me stop and “look in the mirror”, or enjoying a good laugh and smile when I read a sarcastically funny post. Lately I have been admiring the quality of photos from you iPhone users…you know who you are… BUT NOTHING BEATS A DSLR
Seriously, though, all of you are wonderfully, talented and gifted; true blessings.
