    Red Rose




    He left roses before her. But she was cold toward them. He brought her cards and gifts, but she didn't respond to his shown affection. Yet, he gave her these things, every anniversary, with love. And he refused to stop laying them upon her grave, because he missed her so much.

    Well, it did bring tears to my eyes Gracious, so much so, I had to forward a PM (private message) testimonial to Angela22, about the effect and how her words brought to mind, the mourning of my deceased, Libra born wife.

    May God continue to bless you richly as He carries you Clyde! And isn't this just like the Anointing? The way Abba uses others to touch us where only He can heal. After all, mending, Fixing & purging & blessing are His specialties!
