Flowers of the field

Dandelions with Matthew 6:30

Dandelions are abundant right now. Even though they don’t get much respect, I think they are beautiful—each bloom so perfect and cheery. Today I invite you to enjoy them as part of the creation God has clothed and a reminder of His care for you.

“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They neither work nor weave, but I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was never arrayed like one of these! Now if God so clothes the flowers of the field, which are alive today and burnt in the stove tomorrow, is he not much more likely to clothe you, you ‘little-faiths’? “- Matthew 5:25-30 – J.B. Phillips
