Roses are given as a gift of love.
Graceful and elegant, their aromatic petals delight us as we accept them.
We have been given a gift that is the greatest gift of all.
We must choose, however, to accept it.
God has lavished His love on us!
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
—1 John 3:1-2
