Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 14 February 2019

The Desert Rose

“The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God” (Isaiah 35:1-2).

Today’s Morsel:  Today, around the world, millions of dollars will be spent on roses to show love to others.  The rose.  The beauty of this flower expresses promise, hope, and new beginnings.  It is contrasted by thorns symbolizing defense, loss, and thoughtlessness.  A yellow rose symbolizes joy, protection against envious lovers, and a mature love.  White roses symbolize purity, mysticism, holiness, spirituality, and a secret admirer.  It has been stated that ‘Valentine’s Day’ is when lovers express their affection with greetings and gifts.  If God is our love and secret admirer, then what will we give Him?  If God is our love, then what will we say about Him to others?  If God is our love, if you could, how many roses and what color would you buy Him?  God, He is still the beautiful Rose Sharon.

Sing: The greatest thing in all my life is loving You. The greatest thing in all my life is loving You.  I want to love You more.  I want to love You more.  The greatest thing in all my life is loving You.

Thought For Today:  He’s still the beautiful Rose of Sharon

  2. So I have been growing and juicing my own wheatgrass. I very causally read the growing section of Ann Wigmores's book on growing wheatgrass and that, with my general knowledge of sprouting seeds, I figured out the relatively simple process.
