The other night as I was thinking about this post, God overwhelmed me with an awe of him through these roses (I really don't think it was because of who gave them to me, it was a special awareness of himself). He invented and created their exquisite, delicate beauty, their utter vulnerability yet powerful sentiments that they can represent. The harsh thorns standing like soldiers around their "queen." The natural color and smell that refresh your senses. This is the creativity, power and beauty of God. The rose and the whole creation shout, "There is none like him!" Thank you for allowing me to show off in a small, fragile way a part of your beauty.

No, this isn't an ad for the store! It has been a while since we posted anything personal so I got the idea to blog about Chris' Christmas gift to me. We went out last week to finish purchasing it and I was impressed with the hipness and innovative technology from Japan (of course)! If you haven't heard of it, Uniqlo is a casual clothing store with locations around the world, including NYC. They have a line of clothing called Heattech and that's what I'm here to rave about. That and the fact that my boyfriend bought me some. :)
You see, I am perpetually cold! The clothes are comfortable, neat, lightweight and warm! Being in the store made me feel all hip and stuff minus the vast number of mannequins that made me feel like I was in a weird movie. Not just standing mannequins, hanging ones, like from the ceiling moving up and down through the three store levels. I think the idea was to scare you into buying something because if you didn't...well, your fate was obvious. ;)
