Sign of spring

Sign of spring

A new daffodil pushes its way through the layer of decay that winter has left behind. So I push on despite the uncertainties through which I pass.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

And why do you worry about 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."

Matthew 6:25-29

I can't help but think of the resurrection when I see this flower pushing it way up from the dead sod!!!

Thanks Jim..... Wonderful!
