"So I tell you, don't worry about everyday life ~ whether you have enough food, drink, and clothes. Doesn't life consist of more than food and clothing? Look at the birds. They don't need to plant or harvest or put food in barns because your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to Him than they are. Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not. And why worry about your clothes? Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't He more surely care for you? You have so little faith...seek first the kingdom of God and all His righteousness and all these things (mentioned) will be added unto you."
~ Jesus Christ, quote recorded in Matthew 6:25-30, 33 NLT & NKJV ~
A penny, a coin; scooping down low to pick them up, stranded and alone.
Flowers; taking a moment to breathe in such detailed beauty so often ignored.
Kind words; hearing the sound of the vibrations of life spoken forth from another spirit that God so beautifully created.
Hugs; experiencing an embrace from another soul.
Opening the door for someone; an expression revealing that you are noticed and important.
I am reminded to intentionally pause and smell the flowers in the midst of the rush of life; to take notice and be more intentional as I look into the eyes of the people I surround myself with, especially my husband and children; to intentionally be thankful to my Amazing God who allows me to live and freely declare Who He is by being who He has called me to be, a woman of great faith in God.
