Secret's Out

My 'Secret' rose burst out in bloom shortly after it rained and I took these photos of it.

This bloom is from the same 'Secret' rose plant.

My 'Sentimental' rose also bloomed.

This will be my last post for awhile. I'm taking a break until after the holidays from all blogging.
 I wish all very happy holidays.

"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.
The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave himself for me."  Galatians 2:20
New International Version of the Bible

This is Paul's 'Secret' that he shared with Peter, the Galatians,
and those who wanted to know what life in Christ really means.

Absolutely beautiful roses!!! Even though I lived many years in California, I still can't imagine these beauties in bloom now, especially since it snowed really hard today here in upstate New York!! Thank you for visiting Quiddity 2 and for asking about "Stop War". I am very pleased that you like it. I am not really on RedBubble anymore since I signed with McGaw Graphics, but I did go over and upload that image for you! I'm sure all my friends over there are in shock to see a new image! haha!
Do enjoy your blog vacation! I think that's really smart. I'm taking off for two weeks after my next post, as I'm leading a photo workshop to Paris. You should come along on the spring one and make your own art photos!
Rest well,

Hello sweetie,

I just want to thank you for what you said on your comment yesterday. It's always great to see you there. But yes, take it easy, enjoy your time away from the computer. I totally think it's necessary at times. I'm not stopping w/ the posts, but trying to stay less around the computer. I have too much pain (braxton hicks) if I stay here for too long. After all, only 4 weeks to go. Can you believe it? I'm a bit scared but I know everything will be okay. :-)

Have a blessed week,

Hello sweetie,

I know you aren't posting now, but sometimes I need to stop by to see your blog because I miss it.

Everything is going well but I'm so ready! Matthew is ready too. He's already engaged and I feel to much pressure. The day is coming soon... I hope! :-)

Have a great weekend, sweetie.
