Romania is the country of my birth. Over there roses are very easy to grow. My parents’ house had many roses, of all colors and shapes. But in Nigeria, where I live, it is very hard to grow these flowers. The heat and the humidity is not good for them. For many years, it was one of my secret pain that I will not be able to touch a natural rose here. That is why when I see one rose in bloom, I consider it as a gift from God to me. Jesus said that He is the Rose of Sharon…beautiful, exotic and fragrant. Now you understand my joy when I saw this rose blooming in front of my kitchen window in Warri, Nigeria. Just because of this rose, I declare that today is a good day! In Jesus name, amen!
“I am the Rose of Sharon…” (SS 2:1)
