This time of year...spring...is so refreshing. Our senses are awakened from winter...visually we see beauty rising from the ground...sweet fragrances also fill the air and mild temperatures wash over us. Yesterday I snapped a picture of a bush growing in front of our office. The brilliant color just stopped me in my tracks. Isn't it amazing to consider how the Lord can bring such stunning colors up from the earth...from the dirt beneath our feet? And isn't it encouraging that we, who are made from the earth, can also spring up with color before our maker as well? Sometimes I think we forget who our designer is! And we may forget that our potential is realized as we are planted in Him and washed in His warmth.
Matthew 6:28...Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
