Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity? —Job 2:10
I can understand raspberries, strawberries, radishes, and even danilions but thistle. I believe that thistle is God's little reminder that we will never fully understand his plan. Maybe it is part of the curse. I don't understand, the are just like a very unpleasent person, deep rooted, full of thorns and always trying to choke out life. They are God's creation and part of his plan, I just don't want them in my garden. But I do thank God for thistles because if there weren't any than Braveheart just wouldn't have been the same.
