Grass and Flowers and Birds

Why do you worry …think about how the flowers of the field grow; they don’t work or spin… yet Solomon in all his glory wasn’t clothed like one of these… Matthew 6:28-29

My flowers! I love each variety that blooms at different times of the year. Like a show of color and design, they thrill me with every blossom.

…if this is how God clothes wild GRASS, which is here today and gone tomorrow, won’t He clothe you even more…?” Matthew 6:30

Grass! – I can see it from every window, my house is surrounded. It takes me several hours each month to cut, edge and weed during growing season. I take great care of it all.

“Look at the birds in the sky: They don’t sow, or reap, or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you far more valuable than they are” Matthew 6:26

Birds! In the trees surrounding us, even when the doors are closed I can hear them singing. Jesus said I’m far more valuable. 

If God cares for grass and flowers and birds and provides for their needs, won’t He provide for me too? “Oh you of little faith.”  I needed reminding today! Just walking outside to take a look and listen. It sounded as if all was saying, “Why do you worry? Why do you fear anything? Silly girl, have peace.”
