Cydney’s Inspiration for this design
Roses are my favorite flower of all time. Those of you who know me, know I will have a bouquet of roses on display at my house.  I believe roses are the most delightful flower of all. My mind could never fathom just how much love God put into naming each kind of rose and giving each rose its own special perfume! We are Gods roses here on earth! We each have a unmatchable, unequaled beauty that is unique, one of a kind.  Your unique essence releases to those around  you!
Prior to me starting Love’s Pure Light I trained as a florist in London United Kingdom with Jane Packer. I loved going to the Royal Chelsea flower show! One of my positions as a florist was that I worked as a hotel florist.  My position each week was to decorate the lobby and each floor, restaurant, penthouse with extravagant fresh flower arrangements. I loved shaping each vase to have character and a story,to be able to create how the colors of flowers communicated with each other was a delight. How wonderful it was to get the world to stop and smell the flowers and be awakened with the colors of life! I had to wake up at the crack of dawn each week and go to the flower market and chose all of the blooms. Good thing I had a budget because I can tell you that I always overspent, mesmerized by the beauty  to choose from. I would come home with flowers leftover each week from my creations at the hotel and end up giving flower arrangements to all of my neighbors! My favorite roses to chose were always the garden roses, the promise roses from New Zealand. Because of the volcanic soil they were so big and buttery with their rippling petals of hundreds inside one blossom. I now live on Vancouver Island here and I have been blessed with Butchart Gardens close at hand(!) where I can journey through the most extravagant rose gardens full of thousands of roses and beautiful flowers. The wonder never stops, the beauty never fades! At the scent of a rose , worry disappears. There is something so soothing about roses, something so comforting the intoxicating scent of a rose diminishes any anxiety. To inhale and exhale such a magnificent scent! To see the beauty of God... magnified into such a beautiful delicate flower! It shifts the atmosphere of one’s heart. To have our eyes and hearts are fixed on such a wonder and magnificence of detail. When a rose is in full bloom, it is in its glory. They don’t get jealous of another rose; they just bloom where they are planted and let their fragrance spread abroad.  My grandmother had a painting in her house that simply said this, “Life is a beautiful garden and you are the most beautiful rose of them all” 
A truth that I hold close to my heart. ---Cydney
