That takes you to Dulcinea’s post. then click on the link she put in for fellow blogger.

While reading a fellow blogger’s post this mornig, I was reminded how a rose, when it’s withered or crushed, gives a more beautiful fragrance, more so than before that state. It doesn’t become a different flower because it’s withering. And although the physical beauty is diminished, the fragrance on the inside is enhanced and more dominant in this new situation, if you will.
No matter the pain and suffering we may endure in this life (nobody is immune), if we are steadfast within ourselves, the person GOD has created us to be, and not compromise who we are during a low point, OUR FATHER in HEAVEN gives us beauty for our ashes. Our beauty, our fragrance that is on the inside of us, comes out because of the anointing which is upon us, while HIS HANDS are resting upon us.
