Take time to smell the roses

Derek writes: How are we feeling today after the disappointment of the football.
I was pretty flat for a couple of days, Thomas cried for 20 minutes when he saw the highlights on Monday morning.
Will I see another final in my lifetime ?, ( I was a toddler in ’66  ).
I have now taken a deep breath and reminded myself that God still loves me and loves all of us, and the roses are flowering.
Do take a few minutes to look at your roses ( or neighbours ) and take in their beauty and scent.
The roses included are taken by Gary in his Sharpthorne garden, what a glorious sight!
