Stop And Smell The Roses


The last several days have been absolutely overwhelming. I have to admit that.

And I’ve been talking with colleagues in the natural life and family movement, which includes pro-life, marriage between a man and a woman, good educational choices, stopping the violence in our world, helping people not to be overwhelmed with life, and all of that.

Well, I was meditating and praying and I was having some issues of my own because I’m a mother and a grandmother, and constantly praying for children and grandchildren, wondering how I was going to fund certain projects, and things like that.

And I began to say, “I trust you, Lord. I love you, Lord. I worship you, Lord.” And I said various psalms, inspirational messages, ‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, all those scriptures coming through my heart, “the Lord is my shepherd.”

I peeked out my window as I was praying and the roses were in full bloom. Now they have probably been in full bloom for several days and I was so busy that I did not have time to stop and smell the roses.

One of my little granddaughters just came in from outside and the roses were blowing in the wind and she ran over to smell them and she went, “mmmmm” and I also wrote in my journal for one of my little goddaughters about the roses. And as all of that was happening I remembered the day before I had peeked out at the roses and then I took another peek and there was a deer out in the yard.

So I want to encourage everyone today to seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the things that we desire will be added to us. Delight ourselves in the Lord and he will give us the desires of our heart.

So pray this weekend for justice in the Gosnell case and pray for the soul of the people who are just lost in the confusion who think it’s okay to kill human beings in the womb. All of that but in the midst of everything you’re doing stop and smell the roses.
