When flowers, beauty, holiness, nobility, purity, Christ within

blooms within your soul like rare and beautiful roses, not because

of anything we have done but because of the grace upon grace

upon grace our Savior bestows through His glorious and majestic

gift of salvation. It makes this end time world seem like a fields of

thorns. And indeed it is, yet Christ’s beauty within us no matter what

surrounds us makes us bloom over and over and over again. Christ within,

Christ without, Christ surrounds us with His love. Praise Him, for we are

His beloved, His Holy, redeemed, sanctified, majestic roses whose fragrance,

redemption, and transformation is only from our living vine, Jesus Christ,

our risen, reigning , royal, redeeming King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
