The illustration of the poor, abused rose bush is very compelling and nicely done. You might consider re-working your last paragraph--it's got a few too many metaphors and loses some of its impact. I'd love to see this expanded with the rose illustration, written as a full-length story.
Isn't it wonderful to know that God will always take care of us no matter what happens?

Worry is always a hard thing to deal with and it just won't go away easily. There always seems to be something to worry about. But as Jesus said, we shouldn't worry and it doesn't do anything good for us. When we start to worry, the best thing to do is to go straight to God and he will give us comfort and strength.

'...nourish petals of hope...' that is beautiful! and the image of the poor rosebush, I can see it...

I loved this! If you don't write poetry, you should start today! The rose bush was an inspiration. Thank you for your imagery. Blessings! Valora
Wow! I love hearing the hope that resides within Christians. Great story!
