TWO ROSES TOGETHER FOREVER
REV. DUANE BEMIS
GENESIS 2:24-25

AS I DREW THE VISION BEFORE MY EYES OF TWO HANDS WITH TWO ROSE BUDS GRAFTED INTO THE VEINS OF THE ARMS OF JESUS CHRIST, I HEARD THE SPIRIT SAY TO MY HEART:

"WHAT I PUT TOGETHER, LET NO ONE SEPARATE. AS EACH OF YOU IS GRAFTED INTO ME, I WILL BRING YOU TOGETHER TO MAKE ONE FLESH. LET ME BE YOUR REFUGE AND YOUR SHIELD.
