Just rambling thoughts about anything that happens to be on my mind and that usually isn't much!

Wildflowers

Mt 6:28b See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
Mt 6:29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these

When I was a child, my mother taught me to love wildflowers.  She taught me to look closely at the intricate detail God puts in each one.  Some He puts in clusters; others He keeps single; some in radiant color.  So yesterday, with the sun bright and warm, I had to stop along a gravel road and admire God's handiwork.

The prairie was awash in color.
But to really enjoy God's handiwork, one needs to be on his knees. 
A place I, and perhaps others, need to spend more time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope my children learned the same from me.

In a couple of weeks the flowers here at Rabbit Run will be out in force. We have more native flowers than any other kind. Our Blue stem grass is about a foot high and it will be pretty by the 4th of July. Being right on the edge of the hardwood forest and the short grass prairie we have a wide diversity of flowers. Love your pictures. MUD

What a keen observation. I don't know how I missed this post, but I'm glad it caught my eye when I glanced over at the sidebar. Beautiful.
