Is a Rose Just a Rose?

There is a quote from Abraham Lincoln that says: “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” There is wisdom in that statement. Life for each of us will have times of thorns. The majority of us focus on the thorns and the pain those little rascals inflict. Look at the same situation a little different and a rose might come into view.

You might also find a rainbow on a rainy day. You may also hear a baby’s laugh following a diaper change. Yes, we will all have thorns in our life, which is precisely why the Creator added the rose. So next time you get stuck, look for the rose.
