I like this! You drew some wonderful parallels. All in all, a good read.

Good title, and really good example of drawing truth from everyday life.

I wonder if it would be more effective if you ended with the roses, rather than the lesson. Let your readers reach the conclusion that you've gently guided them to.

A very visual piece, well written.
I enjoyed the practical applications from the rose bush. Your writing is easy to read and to follow. Personally, I would like to see less switching back and forth between rose bush and life application.

Great writing and message - I also feel it might be more effective ending with the roses, but this was still very strong! Thanks!
