As I regard our lovely holly bush this morning, I laughed as I looked at the fast, vigorous growers on the top. They are lush green, reaching to grow as much as possible before being trimmed into submission by my ever-hardworking husband.
As goes my mind, I thought about the various ways you could see these shoots of green.
- Unsightly sore thumbs- they just don’t fit in. They are not following the lines of the accepted holly bush shape.
- Overachievers – they are just showing off. They want to outshine all the others around them.
- Reachers of grandeur- they want something more, something different. They are not content to merely follow the herd mentality and stay within the accepted boundaries of holly bush rules. They are reaching for the heavens.
Now I know by writing this, my sweet husband is now going to have trouble trimming this bush, as he will feel bad for trimming their exuberance. lol
How do you see these lovely green shoots? I would love to hear in the comments below.
Have a wonderful day seeing the world that God has made in all its exuberant glory.
