Roses in the wind


Goodbye Norway's roses
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart.


After Elton John

I shall not comment much on what is going on in my heart.
Just this; People are marching tonight, filling the streets of Norway with roses in their hands.
A survivor of the massacre said, "If one man can do so much cruelty; how much more love don't we have to give, to conquer evil?"

These roses are beautiful. Mine are not doing well this year. Since I fractured both of my ankles in the spring, I haven't been able to care for them like I normally would. I miss their beautiful blooms. And what a wonderful way to remember those who did not survive this ordeal.

Beautiful roses. May the world know not such evil.

Hate conquers, should we allow it to. For some, they will not consider love and will hate to define their very being.

The roses are a pale ping, a soft and thoughtful color. Pure in spirit, the pink rose is life affirming. If the look of life and love is in the flowers, we would hope in our hearts - no matter what evil exists in some...

In the midst of such horror it's more important than ever to notice beauty and see and hear the kindness of most people...

Even one drop of love, one minuscule drop, is more powerful than all the evil in the world.


PRAISE FOR RED

What is there about the color red
That makes me want to stand on my head,
And give a loud shout or two of praise
For crimson tints that brighten my days?

Dear Felisol on my blog I have a story of Indian teenagers surviving the island shootings

Words are not sufficient to placate the bitterness and anguish of the whole world due to the tragedy that happened in Norway. That one of the carnage was conducted by a person dressed as a police officer made the incident more surreal. Praise the Lord that there were survivors of this tragic incident. We will never know the reason for this inhumanity of one man against his fellowmen but the Lord has His reason even for this. The roses are beautiful symbols of Norway's struggle to get over this tragedy. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

So, so sorry, Elise.
