The close up of a rose is a story of a close up of growth. And the petals represent the growth of different humans. We cannot grow on our own. We depend on one another, because God works through each of us. In order to grow into a blossom, one petal is not sufficient. We need one another.
Some of us grow like the petals leaning closer to each other, while others demand more space.
Some people reach out for others that are lower in growth. Others try to reach those that are higher.
Some try to crush others in anger and jealousy, and other petals look indifferent and turn their backs.
Many are unnoticeable, in a shade, and a few are in a bright spotlight with exposed veins of different growth paths.
