Consider The Lilies

This past Sunday, Our Pastor spoke on some of my favorite scriptures. Matthew 6:28-30 "...Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: (29) And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. (30) Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O' ye of little faith?"

He spoke on the stress that we cause ourselves when we worry. Worry is the enemy of faith, and stress is the enemy of good health. Make sure you are doing what you can about the things that you can. Everything else must be trusted to God. So slow down and be reminded of this when you see a flower.

Look at my beautiful Shell Ginger blooming. It looks like a cluster of pink grapes.
This is my heirloom miniature rose blooming it's little heart out.
Finally, I found a hot pink umbrella. I couldn't pass it up. I love bright blue and hot pink in the garden. The large leaf is a miniature banana tree I have planted in a pot.
Even my giant bird of paradise with its huge blackish purple, brown and cream blooms are beautiful. They look like giant prehistoric birds.
