Because She Loves Pink

china rose / rejoicing hillsBecause my mom’s favorite color is pink, it seems only fitting to post these pictures on Mother’s Day.  Even more fitting, because the pictures of this splendid china rose just bursting into bloom were taken in my husband’s grandmother’s yard—so this is really in honor of the mothers on both sides of our family.  Aren’t these flowers beautiful?  But certainly no more so than the beautiful spiritual heritage our mothers passed down to both my husband and I.  We are so grateful!

“I greatly desire to see thee…that I may be filled with joy, when I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, is in thee also.”  (2 Timothy 1:4-5)
