Beautiful Rose

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!

  1. Beautiful picture and what a great reminder about the redeeming love of our Lord. And talking about reminder, I remembered this video as soon as I saw this picture.

  2. Wow! Yes, Jesus wants the rose. Amazing! Thank you!
