Are we focusing on the fact that our rosebushes have thorns – or are we being thankful that the thorns in our lives have roses? We spent time acknowledging that life is hard but nevertheless, God is good. The centerpieces on our tables were rosebush stems with thorns. Rose petals were spread on each table as well. One of our attenders, Deb, volunteered to make the candle votives for our tables in the rose theme. These votives were given as parting blessings to some of the gals there.
