New Life With A Change

Sadly my lovely yellow rose bush planted in 2006 died in 2009 after producing these lovely yellow flowers for three years. So I cut the bush back to the ground with plans to purchase a new rose bush to replace it.

Last year to my delight the bush grew back but did not bloom. This year rose buds appeared and when they began to open I did a double take - the flowers are RED.

I am amused with this change. The company that produced the yellow rose must have grafted yellow plants on red roots. Cutting the bush back to the roots when the bush died gave the original plant a chance to be reborn in its natural color.

When a child is conceived a physical body is grafted to a spiritual soul and blooms in this world with what ever color and shape is provided by the two parents. For all the years of physical life what is perceived is one thing to the world and and another to God. When the physical dies the immortal soul returns to God in its original form.


  1. I hope you share pictures of the red blossoms with us, too!

  2. How interesting, this changing from yellow to red. So glad you did not lose the plant.

  3. I was thinking a lot about changes this morning. Thank you for this post. It brought tears to my eyes.

  4. This made me smile :) Very interesting, and I learned something too!
