    Drift Roses | Jacques Ferare | Star Roses & Plants

    in Gardening

    Internationally acclaimed rosarian Jacques Ferare from Star Roses & Plants joins us to chat about Drift Roses. 
    Drift® Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniature roses. From the former they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited their well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature. 
    Continuously blooming from spring to frost (bloom cycle about every 5-6 weeks), they are naturally dwarf, with very attractive foliage. They are winter hardy to zone 4. 
    Drift® Roses range in size from 2-3' wide x 1 1/2' tall.  The low, manageable habit of Drift® Roses makes them perfect for small gardens, hillsides, perennial beds and even awkward areas. They brighten up borders and fill in empty spaces around your favorite established plants.

    Why Fasting and Prayer is Important, Part 20 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #340)

    in Prayer

    Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Psalm 35:13 which reads: "But as for me, when they [my enemies] were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom."

    Allow me to share with you some important points regarding this verse from Matthew Henry's Commentary:

    How tenderly, and with what a cordial affection, he had behaved towards them in their afflictions: They were sick. Even the palaces and courts of princes are not exempt from the jurisdiction of death and the visitation of sickness. Now when these people were sick, David mourned for them and sympathized with them in their grief. They were not related to him; he was under no obligations to them; he would lose nothing by their death, but perhaps be a gainer by it; and yet he behaved himself as though they had been his nearest relations, purely from a principle of compassion and humanity. David was a man of war, and of a bold stout spirit, and yet was thus susceptible of the impressions of sympathy, forgot the bravery of the hero, and seemed wholly made up of love and pity; it was a rare composition of hardiness and tenderness, courage and compassion, in the same breast. Observe, He mourned as for a brother or mother, which intimates that it is our duty, and well becomes us, to lay to heart the sickness, and sorrow, and death of our near relations. Those that do not are justly stigmatized as without natural affection.

    We will discuss this verse further in the next broadcast.

    My personal encouragement today is this: Families are in need of agreat amount of intercession. Even if your marriage and family seem strong right now, seek out those familiesin your community who are on the rocks and make it your mission to pray for them daily.
