This week I had to drive into Silverton, Oregon for a doctor appointment. The drive was beautiful, lots of beautiful farm country, cute baby farm animals, interesting barns and houses. When I came upon this scene, I was breath taken. Such a beautiful color, on the way back home, we had to stop for a picture. We only had my hubby's phone camera, but I just had to have this picture. We pulled over by the Field, the minute we stepped out of the van, the air was filled with the scent of these flowers. This field of flowers was planted by a seed company, and luckily they had a sign post of what was growing- Siberian Wallflowers.
This beautiful field of flowers reminded me of Matthew 6:25-34 Were Jesus is talking about not worrying.
Especially Matthew 6:28-29 -And why do you worry about your clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
Also Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:25-34 is one of my favorite passages in the Bible, as I tend to worry more than I ought to. Seeing this field of beautiful flowers was a nice reminder. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday, and a nice Father's Day!
