Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Considering lilies...

 
 
 
I've been much in thought about Luke 12. Where Jesus told us to 'consider the lilies.' Oh it is so like Jesus to use something as simple and lovely as flowers to convey his thoughts to us...








 
"Walk into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They don’t fuss with their appearance—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. If God gives such attention to the wildflowers, most of them never even seen, don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?"

 
 
 
 
 
 29-32 “What I’m trying to do here is get you to relax, not be so preoccupied with getting so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Don’t be afraid of missing out. You’re my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself."
 
 
I'm listening, Lord. And I'm considering the lilies...
 
 
Have a wonderful weekend!

You pictures are lovely as usual. Do you use a special camera? I am not a cat person, but that cat picture is a mover. Have a good weekend.

Thank you Joanne, Bookie, and Elephant's Child. Bookie, I use a Canon Rebel and own just two lenses, the standard one that came with it and a longer range one. I am still learning how to use it and suspect it will be a lifelong adventure. But I love editing in Picasa. You can do so much with editing. And you would definitely not like my cat! She's very unfriendly and persnickety...but a great mouser and we love her in spite of her bad attitude. I liked this pic because she seemed so serene, sitting there in the sun, as though she was praying or meditating. I've not seen that side of her before. Have a great weekend all!
