Think About Such Things

If you’ve ever been stressed out, worried about something (i.e. bills, family, friends, health issues, work, etc), or fearful of something or fearful of the future, think about “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)

Perhaps by focusing on the loveliness or purity of a roses’ petals, you can let go of the thorns dwelling within such a peculiar, but lovely plant.
