I guess the roses will be done soon. What's left of them after the dreaded black spot from the rain.
2 Corinthians 12:7-9 (New International Version)
[Paul writes] To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
