The rose and the thorn are part of the same plant — we cannot have one without the other. The analytical mind always attempts to separate the good and evil, the decorative and the ugly, the useful and the nonuseful, the weed and the flower. I have seen during my journey people pulling out foxgloves in one area and carefully planting them in another. If we are to live in harmony with God's family, we need to love the wilderness, the weeds, and the wet.
