The Lilies

Do you worry? I know I do. I am a fabulous worrier. My mother was the best worrier ever. I handed that particular trait down to my daughter. That was unfortunate. What if I had taught her instead to trust in God's provision for us. My favorite comfort scripture is "And why do you worry about clothes? Look at how the lilies in the field grow. They don't work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that Solomon with his riches was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers."
Matthew 6:28-29(NCV)
I pledge this weekend to toil not. Oh and not to spin as in the King James version. Relax. That's what I am going to do. With my lovey. Joe.
grace surrounds us


  1. Oftentimes, I try to tell the Lord, that I'm really NOT worrying, just being CONCERNED. fine line there. My husband likes to say that most of what we worry about never happens, but then I always correct him. but he is right and I need to remember that. Trusting God is such a daily thing. Always love your posts, I'm adding you to my 2 mile long blog roll.

  2. Debra, I know what you mean. it's so easy to try to convince ourselves we are not really worrying. I am honored to be on your blog roll and mean to go to your bible study blog this week!

  3. Ahhhh yes, I am the very QUEEN of worry!
    It's a horrid trait, isn't it? Really robs us of peace, too.

    I'll pray for you, please do the same for me. :-)


  4. Yes Anne, of course I will pray for you my new friend.

    the queen's sister,


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
