This is just a random picture I took last week. I pulled
this rose out of a Valentine's arrangement my dad gave to my mom.
In the vase, there were a dozen dried out, dirty looking roses, but I dug around
and came across this one. I love this rose! I'll keep it as long as it remains in one piece!
It reminds me of what Jesus did for me. He picked me, a dried up rose that
would appear worthless to many people, and made me His prized possession.
The only difference is that when I let Him pull me out
of that vase, He gave me new, everlasting life. I became healthy and very much
alive. There are no brown stains on me anymore; He
took my filthiness and put it on Himself at the cross, and He placed on me His righteousness!
That just boggles my mind!
LIVE. LOVE. LAUGH. CAPTURE IT!
