The Roses of Success!!!

Pappy was off work yesterday, so our boys spent the night with us SONday night.  
I've shared with y'all before that I "kiddie" movies.  
We watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with the boys and I think Nannie might have enjoyed it more than they did.  I had never seen the movie before....can you believe that?!?!?  
Anyway, this was one of my favorite scenes....not the scene itself, but the lyrics to the song!!!

The Roses of Success

Every bursted bubble has a glory!
Each abysmal failure makes a point!
Every glowing path that goes astray,
Shows you how to find a better way.
So every time you stumble never grumble.
Next time you'll bumble even less!
For up from the ashes, up from the ashes, grow the roses of success!
Grow the roses!
Grow the roses!
Grow the roses of success!
Oh yes!
Grow the roses!
Those rosy roses!
From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success!
 For every big mistake you may be grateful!
Here, here!
That mistake you'll never make again!
No sir!
Every shiny dream that fades and dies,
Generates the steam for two more tries!
(Oh) There's magic in the wake of a fiasco!
Correct!
It gives you that chance to second guess!
Oh yes!
Then up from the ashes, up from the ashes grow the roses of success!
Grow the roses!
Grow the roses!
Grow the roses of success!
Disaster didn't stymie Louis Pasteur!
No sir!
Edison took years to see the light!
Right!
Alexander Graham knew failure well; he took a lot of knocks to ring that 
bell!
So when it gets distressing it's a blessing!
Onward and upward you must press!
Yes, Yes!
Till up from the ashes, up from the ashes grow the roses of success.
Grow the roses!
Grow the roses!
Grow the roses of success!


It reminded me of this verse of scripture.....

Isaiah 61:3
To all who mourn (in Israel)
    He will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
    festive praise instead of despair.


In HIS Most Precious Lve....and with mine, too!!!

Blessings,
Deb
