The Big Picture

     This is probably the last rose of the season I’ll see and pick from the rose bush in my yard.

     The way the individual petals overlap, each filling the space next to others…together creating a gorgeous full blossom of layered petals.

     If I would pull a petal or two, you probably would notice the gap and the blossom would not appear as radiant and full.

     So it is with life.  Our lives blossom in layers, each building upon and interconnecting with the others.  Some of the petals may be discolored or a little off kilter, but in the big picture, we have created a blossom that is uniquely us.

     Do you see the big picture or do you see only a petal or two?  Display all your petals, bring your unique beauty to the world and let others see the big picture, too.  It’s so much more beautiful than a single petal.
