My friend Rose

This is my dear friend, Rose.
She is truly a Proverbs 31 Woman.
I noticed her cape on Sunday.
She made it, but more than that,
look what she lined it with:
What a frugal woman.
I love Rose's style.
She is conservative, but has a total look about her.
She doesn't call attention to herself, but looks
pulled together, and so approachable.
I personally love her soft look,
to me it is an example and not only that her mannerisms
are the same.
I have much to learn from Rose, some of it just by observation.
I hope you have a Rose in your life.
Proverbs 31:26
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
Proverbs 31:27
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Proverbs 31:28
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

What a sweet lady! I so enjoy your posts about her. My "Rose" was my Granny, who is in Heaven now. I have met several other Roses through my life, and I hope to meet more. I love older people so much!

She looks like a sweet woman! Everyone needs a Rose in their lives, and to be a Rose to someone else!

Dear Deby,

Isn't this the lady whose home you visited and blogged about?

I wish I had a 'Rose' in my life. I sorely need one.

What a marvelous idea! Thank you for sharing this!

She seems like such a lovely lady. I, too, enjoy posts where you share things about her.

I like how you put it---her look is soft and approachable. Pretty but not over done. I also like that she isn't trying to look 'young'. She seems content with her age and stage in life.

Thanks for sharing. (o:

Deby, Rose looks so sweet. What a suprise when you opened her cape and found ties. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I don't get too many recently. Neither on the KJV Blog where we write. Do you look at that one? Quite a few Interesting writers.

What a lovely woman Miss Rose is! And I'm sure that she enjoys having you as her lovely friend too!

P.S. You can link to whatever you like whenever you wish!

LDH said...

That is the best! Please tell Rose just what a neat idea that is... kinda like Joseph's coat of many colors.

Rose looks like such a sweet lady. I have enjoyed the posts you have done about her. I love her cape...what a great idea! It's nice to have such a lovely friend.

Mary said...

My first thought was Dolly Parton's song about her coat of many colors when I saw that lining.

Candy-Faith said...

She is a lovely lady...just like YOU! :)

Abounding Treasures said...

So good to finally see a photo of Rose because I love the stories you share about her!

What a wonderful surprise that must have been to have her open her beautiful cape and see that she had lined it with all sorts of colourful ties :o)


HOPE said...

What a fitting tribute Deby to your dear sweet friend ROSE.

She is precious!

How I love her cape..so clever, resourceful and I wonder? maybe she likes to have her husband or sons close to her?

Yes, I have a ROSE in my life..her name is Betty. In her 70's and a wonderful example of a Proverbs 31 woman also.

Wonderful post..I hope Rose gets to view it.


BECKY said...

Aawww, Deby, I used to have a Rose! Her name was Lucille, and she shined her light everywhere! What a cutie Rose is!! I'm sure she is delighted to know you, too!

Thanks for sharing your special friend, and reminding me of mine!

La Tea Dah said...

How beautiful -- both Rose and her lovely lined cape. So creative --- I love her resourcefulness!


Tori said...

Okay now I am totally impressed with Rose's talents. That cape is to die for.

She is such a lovely lady and how special that she is equally as lovely inside.

Jessica said...

That cape is fab! What a sweet lady!

GraceFromHim said...

Wow, I would have never thought of that. She sounds like such a blessing to have around! God puts those special ladies in our lives. I have a few I also look up to, and am very thankful for their examples.
have a blessed day, thanks for sharing!!!

Cathy said...

You are blessed to have such a beautiful friend, Deby. :o)

I am rapidly becoming one of those older women, but I find I love the company of women even older than myself. My Mom and her friends are so special to me. They have so much to give, and I still have so much to learn.

A Note From Theresa said...

That is just incredibility cute! And your friend just warms my heart. I have such respect for the Hoary Head of a women that loves the Lord. She looks like a dear to me!

Elizabeth said...

I've read this post over and over. I wanted to reply, but didn't quite know how to say what I was feeling, so here's my best shot.

You meet a lot of ladies in your life that are a blessing. You get some help from them and they teach you and you're thankful for them. But every once in a while you have the privilege of meeting a lady like Rose, whose entire life is a encouragement to you. Someone that you maybe consider a role model. I am blessed with a "Rose" in my life, too!

Kelly said...

Rose looks like an absolutely dear lady and I love the cape. What a clever and creative idea to line it with ties.

I guess I'm not the only one thinking about the Proverbs 31 woman this week:)

Pam said...

Now how clever is that! She also knew she was creating a "conversational piece" I'm sure! I do have a Rose in my life, unfortunately, I don't get to see her too often. Her name is Fern.
