Rodney's bush...

This rose bush belongs to my friend Rhonda's mother. We all call it 'Rodney's bush'.

Her son (Rhonda's younger brother) died some years ago. On Mother's Day each year, this bush blooms with at least one pink rose, usually before anything else is blooming.

Last year Rhonda's dad died, and this year on Mother's Day every bush in the garden was green with leaves, but Rodney's bush was loaded with these pink roses.

As Rhonda says... "they are in cahoots up there!"

Isn't it just like God to send this mom pink roses right under her window, on Mother's Day.

There is no scripture that says this is so, but knowing the heart of God... why not? It's one of those special heartwarming things that He does for us, knowing that we need something extra to see that He is with us, even in the roses He sends our way. In the rose, He reminds us that He understands and loves us.

Yes, I agree. The Jews do not believe in coincidence and that every good thing comes from God. I need to be more like that. Beautiful post, my friend.

So many good gifts from our God. I love this story Sonja. And I love roses. A dear friend's mother died. She loved yellow roses. I was so glad that there were roses in the front of my condo. And every time the yellow ones bloom, I think of Eileen.

Love you,
Debbie

Oh how I love this! In my life I've witnessed scores of "coincidences" that lead me to believe God's personal touches are just one facet of His grace. He truly does come near.

Happy Mother's Day!

How lovely!

I happen to think that God is extravagant in His love. So, when I see a butterfly at just the *right* moment I need to be reminded of His presence, or a shooting star on a night when I feel particularly alone - do I think He did it? Why not?!

GOD BLESS!

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!!
