the splendor of flowers The lens of my camera loves to focus on flowers. Maybe that is because the amateur photographer behind the lens loves to gaze upon flowers. :) Each flower is unique and special and beautiful. How creative God is!! And, if he takes time to dress the flowers in splendor, how much more does he care for us? “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." (Matthew 6:25-34, emphasis mine) How great God is!! This post was submitted to the Carnival of Beauty sponsored by following an unknown path. This week the theme is The Beauty of Flowers and is hosted by Ellen at MzEllen & Co. Join us next week for The Beauty of the Holy Spirit. P.S. Can you tell that the bottom left-hand photo is the flower that is in the logo for the CoB?
