Rose Slugs

The rose slugs have done their work and left my rose bush in a pitiful state. They have feasted on the underside of the leaves, leaving a thin layer of tissue and veins. My negligence is to blame. If I had applied an insecticide earlier in the season, they would have been eliminated. But instead, I hoped it wouldn’t happen and left the rose slugs to have free reign over my bush.

How often do we ignore the rose slugs in our life? Bad habits or hurtful relationships that go on too long. When we finally realize our own rose slugs have eaten away at our soul, leaving us brittle and unable to experience the joy we are destined for. But thankfully, there is an insecticide specifically for our souls.

“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”(John 6:35)

Jesus came to get rid of the rose slugs of our lives. His words are life. If we would consistently apply them, then our souls would be healthy and beautiful. Just as we were created to be.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
