One can never question the presence of our Creator God. The colour, texture and perfume of this beautiful bloom shows us living proof. How sensitive of you to recognise the beauty in "Imperfect Glory".
Your response is treasured, Gay. I have been thinking about "glory" recently and I sense that it is very close to "suffering" in the Biblical context. Certainly for Apostle Paul, all his theological writing and pastoral perpectives were filtered through his lens of suffering. He was a deeply traumatized person, yet he could live on to see and understand "glorious" things. Something of deep value in that for all of us, especially for those who are or have lived through suffering.
Ian, It is through our own experience that we are most able to understand the road another travels & in turn show compassion,care and courage.
And you do, Gay - generously and wonderfully.
Happy Valentine's Day, Gay.
Thanks, Ian. Your rose is just beautiful...
Perfect picture of imperfect glory.
My dear Marilyn and Rafal,
You are special appreciators! This is a very fragrant rose too, and I would that I could send you enough of it to fill your rooms. It was taken in my daughter's garden.
The roses are always beautiful!
Thankyou Roberto - I'd have to call you a romantic! In regard to your rose on the piano I have a couple of questions: Do you know what piece of music was on the piano - was it a duet? And, the building in which it was taken is an interesting building, so what is its current function?
I don't know the music, but I love it. The place where the photo is located, remembers in me a lot of unforgettable emotions!
Thanks Roberto, for your reply. I trust we both keep making music with our living, and being open to having our spirits stirred into energizing emotion.
I am very pleased that you also enjoyed this rose, ketanfol.
Receive it as a gift, roccochiara.
Happy Birthday, Gay.
