stop and smell the roses

This morning my rose bushes were in full glorious bloom! I absolutely couldn’t resist walking out to the yard in my pajamas to get a closer look and a couple of Instagram shots. The scent was heavenly! I know why the phrase “stop and smell the roses” was coined. If you can pass by the beckoning aroma of roses and not at least pause to take grateful notice, then you are truly rushing through life and missing some of God’s greatest gifts to us.

Stop and smell lots of “roses” today!

About Lisa Tompkins

Like my blog name suggests- I’m striving to be fully alive. Our Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) came so we could “have life and have it in abundance.” There’s so much to see, learn and experience in this blessed life! John 10:10- “A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” (Yahshua/Jesus)
