I see the beauty of God’s creation surrounded and protected by thorns preventing it from destruction or harm.

Just as this flower is protected are we not as well?

For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thorn bush the cypress will come up, And instead of the nettle the myrtle will come up, And it will be a memorial to the LORD, For an everlasting sign which will not be cut off. Isaiah 55:12-13

What do you see?
