My yard would be boring and dreadfully bare if I was the only one choosing and planting the plants. I welcome the pretty weeds and I'm going to be the one who decides what I'm pulling out, darn it.
And my mind went right to church politics, which we're having at our church right now. I think I sometimes discard ideas outright just because I don't recognize them - the way I was treating the weeds. So I would like to think for myself and decide after further inspection which ideas (weeds) are worth keeping around.
