Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

roses and thorns...

roses and thorns
Every flower photographer
has at least one red rose in their portfolio
and is always trying to capture the "perfect" one.

“He picked up one of Lorna's roses
and set it in my lap. 'Here.'
I picked it up and smelled it.
He poked me in the shoulder.
"See what I mean?
Thorns don't stop you from sniffing.
Or putting them in a vase on the kitchen table.
You work around them....
Cause the rose is worth it...
Think what you'd miss.”

- Charles Martin
