There’s a story behind this little rose bush!
About a month ago, we were letting our goats graze. We had protected our roses since they are a delectable treat for goats. Well, we didn’t take severe enough measure because I looked out the window and lo and behold! Miss Margie was sitting ON TOP of where my little rose bush had been! I was mad! (And it was also kinda funny, but I was mad) She just kerplunked herself down as conqueror and queen of my poor, annihilated bush! The tiny root was just a couple inches (at most) above the ground. It really looked like the end…but it wasn’t. IT WASN’T! And this is my rose bush today…healthier and happier than ever. I’ve never ever seen it look so good!
Lesson 1: Something can FEEL like the end and not BE the end. That doesn’t mean we ignore the uncomfortable + painful process, but we do work through it. We trust God. We wait. We anticipate. We grow or we let go. God will always show us which of these to do.
Lesson 2: Miss Margie may be a better gardener than I am.
