That Roses Have Thorns
I Am Thankful
That Thorns Have Roses..."

A lovely rose on this pretty Monday morning.

Over my desk hangs this prayer:
"Dear God, I have never thanked you for my thorns. I have thanked you a thousand times for my roses, but never once for my thorns. Teach me the glory of the cross I bear; teach me the value of my thorns. Show me that I have climbed closer to you along the path of pain. Show me that, through my tears, the colors of your rainbow look much more brilliant."

-George Matheson (1842-1906), a blind, Scottish poet

Great job of filling up the view! I love the light around the edges of each of the petals. This is really pretty.

An interesting image. I like the grainy effect.
