Wild Rose

Wild roses are a delight to behold. Although not as dainty as their more cultivated, ornamental cousins with their double flowers and delicate appearance, their scent is strong, their bushes large, their flowers bold. It is the same with people. Airs and graces might be sought after, but plain speaking, honest dealing and sincere living are to be better prized than all manners, affectations and sophistications.

A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
Loving favour rather than silver and gold.

The rich and the poor have this in common,
The Lord is the maker of them all.

 Proverbs 22:1-2, NKJV.
