The Luxury of Rose Petals

How much do a dozen red roses cost? I just did a quick count on my climbing rose bush that graces our front gate, and I found nearly 100!! This spring they've gone wild with beauty...and it's all free. The rose petals strewn on the ground are a sign of abundance, of God's generosity, of His loving provision of even non-essentials. Did not our Father say, "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow (He might have said roses...). They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these..." Mt. 6:28-29)
