Are we so aware of the "thorns" that we don't see the Rose? Has our mind "conjured up" so many things that "need to be done" or things that "could go wrong" that we really don't "experience" the Blessings showered upon us? Proverbs 23:7, "...so as he thinks in his heart, so he is..." Constant "complaining" and "bickering" is a "deadly" assault upon our "Peace"and upon our "Souls". Do we draw boundaries with those who constantly complain, by separating ourselves from them? And if they insist in causing "conflict" around and within us, do we tell them, "NOT TODAY"! AND TOMORROW DOESN'T LOOK GOOD FOR YOU EITHER.
You don't have to touch the thorns to SEE AND SMELL the ROSE.
