Affectionately to remembrance

51DF8F7B-6C9D-4560-BF34-EB8544D08CDCWe called it our “Taffy” Rose, chosen for it’s apricot shades in remembrance of our beloved cat “Taffy”, of  nineteen years.


Memorials comfort and remind. We are so prone to forget.

Paul the apostle shared with the believers in Corinth:

“For I received from the Lord Himself that which I passed on to you [it was given to me personally], that the Lord Jesus on the night when He was treacherously delivered up and while His betrayal was in progress took bread,

And when He had given thanks, He broke [it] and said, Take, eat. This is My body, which is broken for you. Do this to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.

Similarly when supper was ended, He took the cup also, saying, This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink [it], to call Me [affectionately] to remembrance.

For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are representing and signifying and proclaiming the fact of the Lord’s death until He comes [again].”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭11:23-26‬ ‭AMPC‬‬



My garden is full of delights! It fills the senses with beauty, color and wonder. It helps me to understand beautiful truths about God, the Creator of heaven and earth.

  1. Beautiful rose for a beautiful cat. Taffy reminds me very much of our own much-loved puss who passed away almost exactly two years ago. Also a long-haired with the same colouring and markings. I have been planting roses lately and shall be acquiring some more. I shall look for a taffy rose.


    1. Hi Sandra, I read your blog and thought your puss was like Taffy. How we miss them! Thank you for your writing, so precious in expression… not to mention the bluebells! My husband is Welsh and tho I am Australian, I have ancestors from Cornwall and Scotland. Kindest regards to you.
