Master Designer

Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.
27-29 “Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.
30-33 “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—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? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.

~Matthew 6:26-33

(this is from last spring)

This time of year is Glorious!

It's as if God is saying, "Surprise!  I didn't forget about you, I'm breathing LIFE back into this cold, dark world. Love it, soak up all this beauty, I created it just for you. And as you delight in it, remember me."

I love to make my home attractive, arranging, decorating, it makes me happy. But even the best home designer can't hold a candle to the design that God displays every spring.

So, so beautiful!!!

(What has happened to my little girl? She's grown so fast!)
