Author and Readers, as you go through each season of your life: may the beauty of God shine upon your life, like the beauty of a Thorn ed Rose! Have a safe and a blessed Christmas, and may the presence of God always surround you! Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate you!


While reflecting on somethings

His presence surrounded me,

Drawing my attention to a slender

Thorn ed tree with hardly any leaves.

Yet there it stood, velvety crimson.....

It's radiance gravitated to me......it seemed

To say...." Do not look at my thorns, they

Help me to shine even more brilliantly. "

It was  a thorn ed rose glistening in

The sun!

Just then riveting across the skies.....a fight

Ensures........it is Divine intervention for you

Bringing you victoriously through even while

You are reflecting on somethings.......yes allow

God's presence to surround you so that the beauty

Of His countenance would be seen upon you like

The beauty of a thorn ed rose!

IS IT ANY WONDER WHY THE WORDOF GOD REFERS TO OUR SAVIOR AS...'THE ROSE OF SHARON...?' FOR IT IS THROUGH THE 'BEAUTY' OF HIS 'THORNS' THAT WE ARE REDEEMED! WHAT A BEAUTY THIS WORK IS...THE ANALYSIS OF THE ROSE AND CHRIST IS SPLENDID! THANKS FOR SHARING THIS WONDERFUL INSPIRATION THAT I'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER. THIS IS A KEEPER. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Such a beautiful illustration Margaret. We all have thorns, but when we let Christ truly shine through us it's only the petals others will see.
God Bless!
