Irresistible Rose

Rose’s smile lit up my life 

As the Grand Funk Railroad song line goes: She set my soul on fire/she’s some kind of wonderful 

Yes she was 

But all she left me was a heart of gold 

Someone special to this man of old 

Who left this earth too soon for me 

But not for God 

She’s now with the Lord 

 

Rose was looking for guidance 

The Lord gave me the privilege 

To minister to her 

And like Evangelist in John Bunyan’s “The Pilgrims Progress” 

Point her to God 

She accepted Jesus as Lord and savior 

 

We are not like the mule who has no understanding and must be controlled by bit and bridle 

God brings us to Himself through Irresistible Grace 

Bringing me to her was a case of Irresistible Rose 

 

I was with Rose for an almost six months season 

I’m perplexed about the reason 

But God is sovereign and has our best interests at heart 

But I must get a grip on the fact that Rose did depart 

 

Rose enjoyed God’s creation 

A cardinal outside the window 

A sunrise/sunset 

The smell of honeysuckle 

And she was sandpaper to my faith 

Helping to make me a better, more Godly man 

Organizing things, preparing meals, inspiring me to be more neat and organized 

 

I wanted to join the last departed woman I love on her journey to heaven 

“God has things for you to do, Jeff”, a Christian brother comforted me 

 

God has things for me to do  

 

Some day God will send me another Rose 

Not from a mold; Rose broke the mold 

God continues to mold me
