a rose by any other name

I like roses. white roses.
I like get well soon roses.
All the while I think I've been patient with life, especially lately. The truth is, I am just beginning to learn about patience & God is challenging me to this. I have a lot to learn but these photos are a true test & reminder to take time and smell the roses.

It so hard to remember that God has a plan for us, esp when we are going through a hard time!! Thanks for the reminder! I hope you are feeling better!

Why is it so hard for us to have the patience to trust in Him and all he has planned for us? I have been a mess lately and instead of clinging to God...all the disappointments have been leading me away from Him.

Those roses are BEAUTIFUL! What a sweet friend <3

so beautiful. every morning, when i take my dog outside, he smells every single shrub. so often, i'm tired and have the urge to yank him back inside, but it's a daily reminder to stop and smell the roses:) sometimes the simplest things in life are the most beautiful.
