Monday is for Beauty: Sunset on a Rose Petal

imageimage

This morning I was out watering my flowers in preparation for a hot day. My rose bushes are in full bloom and I found this beauty of a rose petal laying in the grass. There on this tiny petal is a sunset. I wondered and marveled at it and then put it in my book where I dry flowers. This little treasure blessed me today. My rose bushes were planted in memorial of each of the babies that I have lost in miscarriage. I have three rose bushes, each unique, just like my babies. This particular bush is for my son, Caleb Augustine. What are small wonders and gifts of beauty that you have found today? God is THE Artist. Sunsets on roses. Amazing!

Today is Memorial Day in which we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Take a moment to pray for those KIA and their families.

Memorial Day

As we approach Memorial Day, remember to pray for the dead who have served our country, both those who were KIA and those who died at home. Remember to pray for the families who go on living without their loved ones. And because it is a great sacrifice, pray for those who have the invisible wounds of PTSD. If you have never seen this music video, I recommend getting a kleenex or two before you hit play.
