Spring Beauty

During spring, there are so many variations of floral beauty all around us. As I viewed these beautiful flowers today, I was reminded of the verses from the Holy Scriptures:
“Walk out into the fields and look at the wild flowers … have you ever seen color and design quite like it? If God gives such attention to the appearance of wild flowers ~ most of which are never even seen ~ don”t you think He’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do His best for you?” Matthew 6:29-30 (MSG)
Father, may we always remember how special and beautiful we are to you,  
               In Jesus name,

A Heavenly Conversation

Me: I could not help but stop to admire your beauty and capture it on film.
Lily: Did you know that I was designed by the Creator1 and the Giver of Life2 to add more beauty and to bring joy to the earth3?
Heavenly Father: My child, and if I so intricately created this lily which will bloom and add beauty and joy to this earth for only for a short while4, do you believe I will care for you ~ my most intricate and valued creation?5
