Roses from Russia

Share |

I think today was the first time I've ever received roses for my birthday (which is coming up in a few days!). I was pleasantly surprised when one group of my students (mostly from Russia) presented me with a beautiful bouquet of red roses. What a treat! And the card and generous gift card really made my day. They never cease to amaze me. The birthday card says that I am "A Gift from God." If they only knew how heaven-sent they've been to me. I dreamed about them years before I met them. They have been a spiritual blessing.

God is good ..... all the time.

Hey Regina,
They are also very special to me. They've been through some tough circumstances in their old country, but they're still very nurturing and loving. They can be tough too, but their soft side always shines through.
Peace, Alicia

I'm sure God has given you a double portion of grace to deal with their nurturing AND their tough sides!!

Oh yeah! God has given me more lessons in grace and a huge slice of humility pie.
