The Exploding Rose Bush

One of our favorite things about our office is the rose bush out back. Every spring is absolutely explodes with color.

Being a rose lover, I have five bushes planted outside my house, and I feel fortunate when I have one rose blooming between the five of them. The bush at the office puts all of them to shame. It's as if that bush simply cannot have enough roses.

We get all kinds of insights from that bush, but Curtis said something about it that particularly stuck in my mind..."Some days I could probably have brought more glory to God as a rose bush." I don't normally think that deeply...but that comment made me want to be like an exploding rose bush. One that simply cannot have enough roses. It just cannot bring enough glory to God! (Psalm 19:1)
