Rose Petals...

 Vintage Glass Jar



This glass jar is very old and has a sterling silver top on it.
Very pretty and is a precious treasure to me!
It belonged to my Mother.

It is on my mantel over our fireplace,
It has always been placed at a higher level,
So my grandchildren could not touch it.

Children love jars with lids,
And this jar was not a toy! 




It has been filled with rose petals, many times over the years.

Did you know that the rose stands for Christ and His Church?

Many things can become special to us, we do love are
Sweet treasures that have been handed down to us.
When my Mother was down sizing her home,
I asked her for this specific glass jar.
She looked at me and she said, you might as well take it now,
No sense in packing it away.
So this jar is filled with memories for me!

So here she is, pretty and filled with love;
Because Christ is love,
And the rose petals symbolize Him.

I have sometimes wondered if there is anything I have
That my own children or my grandchildren might want
 Some day that would be a special memory for them?

Remember, you are a sweet smelling aroma of Christ,
As your hard pressed in your life.
Yet, you can choose to praise Him in it all.

Praise is a choice!

Hello, I just wanted to share an updated post that I have done;
And it is done on this beautiful vintage glass jar.
That is filled once again with Rose Petals!
And how to dry Rose Petals;
And to make your own Potpourri!
You can find it HERE

Blessings Always,
Roxy

  1. What a lovely post! I never knew that the rose stood for Christ and his church. What a amazing visual when you release that He is returning for His bride the ones He loves... and Roses to me always represented Love.. What a greater love than what Christ has for us.. Thank you so much for this post. God bless ya,

  3. What a lovely post Roxy. I am sure you have many things your children will want some day. I know I already have several things I treasure that belonged to family members at some point before they were gifted to me. I love your mom's jar full of rose petals. And...I did not know that the rose stands for Christ and His church. I learned something new today...:)

  5. A beautiful treasure indeed, I love your jar! What a beautiful reminder of being hard pressed, we often forget the lesson in that don't we? (at least I do...) Blessings to you! A quiet, rainy morning here, so I thought I'd pop in and visit some friends today! Good to see you are still writing and sharing.

  6. Hi Roxy! I love the memories and the connection to the church just one piece of glass can give to you. And to us now too. It's a good idea to ask if there are things that the kids might want now. We never know what they really love to have!

    Have a great Tuesday!

  8. I'm a very sentimental person and keep anything that has a connection to family, like heirlooms and antiques. What a wonderful way to also remember Christ and His love for us!
