A Sign from God

I have a rose bush that was a cutting from the bush that is on my Grandmother's grave. I got the cutting in 2002 and brought it back and planted it right near my front door. It bloomed a single rose, one time and has never bloomed again. I could never understand why it wouldn't bloom again. I have many rose bushes and they all bloom wonderfully every year. I have fertilized it, watered it, and babied it, but to no avail. Until this year...

(I apologize for the blurry picture. The wind has been blowing wildly here and the bud was moving about.)

My son was out working on the deck he's building on the front of the house and shouted for me to come see my Grandma's rose bush. It's absolutely loaded with buds, dear friends!! I literally started to cry. You see, after the horrific year I had last year, I looked at it as a sign from God - a gift from Him, really - telling me that everything is going to be okay. Perhaps you think I'm a bit over-reaching, but truly, I'm not. This rose bush means so much to me and to have it bloom at this time, is truly a miracle and a gift. I'm so thrilled!!  I feel that the Lord does give us signs to let us know that He is with us and hasn't forgotten us. This is my sign.

I will take more photos (and less blurry ones) as the roses bloom. I just had to share this wonderful event as it has renewed my hope and fills my heart.

  1. Isn't that just wonderful!
    How did you go about getting the cutting to take root. I have wanted to take cuttings from my mother's many rose bushes.

  2. I can totally relate, as I felt God "spoke" to me in a similar wonderful way, just yesterday. I'm glad to read this Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia
