“And now, here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to start all over again.
I’m taking her back out into the wilderness where we had our first date, and I’ll court her.
I’ll give her bouquets of roses. I’ll turn Heartbreak Valley into Acres of Hope.
She’ll respond like she did as a young girl, those days when she was fresh out of Egypt.”
-Hosea 2v14-14 (the message)
NB: God gives roses
