“My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand”
While in Adoration of our Lord yesterday, I prayed.
Lord, more than often, I ponder my weakness and understand I am to weak to lift anyone up to you. I ask You O Lord, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, with my entire heart, to bring Your Hand down to those who seek you in their needs, and scoop them up with Your strength, with Your Almighty Hand and please hear them, heal them and answer them. Amen
As I walked out to my garden this morning, I noticed a rose hanging down on one of my favorite rose bushes. I couldn’t figure out why it was hanging so low, almost upside down. I grabbed my cutters and while I snipped it off the bush, I seen why. It is VERY heavy. I noticed at the base of the rose there were two flowers that had developed and became one flower. One receptacle with two blooms that became one. The bloom is so fragrant and heavy, I could only remember the prayer from yesterday.

Ephesians 6 : 10-18 -
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; besides all these, taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the word of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.”
