Hello, Dear Ones! I thought I'd show you a couple of yellow roses I've had for a month. That's right ~ an entire month! Mr. Precious and I went to a dinner to honor a friend of ours and the florals on the table were gorgeous. When we were ready to leave, we were told to take some of the flowers out of the arrangements! I grabbed these two yellow roses. They were so full and smelled wonderful.

I cut the the stems and poked them into this lovely crystal vase. I've enjoyed them all month.
They are beginning to dry out and I think they're still beautiful. They really don't look real, do they? I have them sitting by the kitchen sink where the sun was pouring in. I love that look!

Here's my very pretty vase and it still has some water in it.

Look at the rose on the left ~ Gorgeous. See how full the petals are?

Look at the rose on the far right! Lovely, don't you think? I love how Mr. Sun is gently kissing my drying up rose petals.

Hope Mr. Sun is shining through your windows today! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Sunshine In My Soul

There is sunshine in my soul today,
More glorious and bright
Than glows in any earthly sky,
For Jesus is my light.
O there's sunshine, blessed sunshine,
While the peaceful, happy moments roll;
When Jesus shows His smiling face
There is sunshine in my soul.
There is music in my soul today,
A carol to my King;
And Jesus, listening, can hear
The song I cannot sing.
There is springtime in my soul today,
For when the Lord is near
The dove of peace sings in my heart,
The flowers of grace appear.
There is gladness in my soul today,
And hope, and praise, and love,
For blessings which He gives me now,
For joys laid up above.
~ sung by me
