On a golf course and road side with my hubs, I admired God's creation with a few pictures of some wonderful wildflowers. I love the details and intricate designs and beautiful pops of color. I'm pretty certain no landscaping crew work to keep these flowers looking fresh and vibrant on the side of the road in the middle of weeds. The Lord sustains and gives water and nutrients and life to these little flowers. I currently have one successful potted house plant despite numerous causalities under my gardening care. (In college there was an ivy from my dad in a ceramic pot hand-crafted by my maw-maw...I have no idea how it survived since I've been known to forget the watering and nurturing part.) But somehow without one single watering can, the perfect soil mixture, Miracle Gro or seed sown with exact depth measurement---these wildflowers grow and thrive! I know compared to fancy smancy beautiful flowers they might seem insignificant, but it occurred to me that the Lord is the gardener to these little wildflowers too! I serve a God that cares for the birds of the air and flowers of the field. If He takes care of these things, then He is able and more than enough to take care of me.
Matthew 6:25-34 (NIV)
