In the most beautiful of gardens, even those tended by the most skillful of botanists, there is an occasional rose that buds, but never opens. In all respects the rose is like all the others, but something keeps it from blooming. It lives, but mysteriously passes without having reached maturity. What happens in nature's garden happens once in a while also in the garden of God's human family. A baby is born, beautiful, precious, but fails to come to its rightful unfolding. Baby Addison has been drawn to God's perfect presence, where our earthly imperfections are made perfect; all injustices made right; all mysteries are explained; and all sorrows turned to happiness.
