“I am the rose of Sharon” (Song of Solomon 2:1a in the King James Version of the Holy Bible)

Women love flowers. We love the way they look and smell. And roses are often a favorite. Could it be that the symbolism of a rose is applied to Jesus Christ so we can truly appreciate His beauty and perfection and the perfect love that He has for each and every one of us. The Rose of Sharon is calling you today to enjoy the quiet solitude of His garden. A place where your heart is still and your mind can rest. As the fragrance of His presence envelops you, take time to savor the delicate petals, the sweet perfume and the beauty of the Rose of Sharon.

Prayer: Jesus, may Your wonderful fragrance linger with me all through the day.
