Welcome, dear friends to another Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly from "How Sweet the Sound". Thank you, Beverly for your faithfulness in hosting us each week. I almost decided to e-mail Beverly and cancel Pink Saturday post for this week. As some of you may know, I live in the Fort Hood area of Texas, and our hearts were broken this past week when our wonderful military men and women came under attack on post. We covet your prayers during this time as our community struggles to make sense of what has happened. Please pray especially for our soldiers and their families that they will not lose heart and for the families of the soldiers who lost their lives and for those soldiers who are being treated for their injuries in our local hospitals. I have not lost faith in God for I know that ultimately He has everyone and every situation in His hands.
The pictures are of some of my favorite pinks around my home: a favorite rosy plate, rosy painting, rosy tea cup and rosy pillow. The first rose from my garden is "Georgetown Tea' and was first discovered at a site in Georgetown, Texas. This is the first rose I see each morning from my patio door. The second rose is "Madame Laurette Messimy", a china rose, first introduced in 1887. The last two roses are "Duchesse de Brabant", a tea rose, first introduced in 1857. Teddy Roosevelt made this rose his favorite, often wearing a bud or flower as a boutonniere. All of these roses are some of the favorites I grow in my cottage garden.

Each post this month I am telling something that I am grateful for. Today I am so thankful to be an American. I love my country very much. I hope each and every one of you are having a beautiful day. I am wishing you a very happy Pink Saturday. Blessings to you, sweet friends!
