*Consider them - mere lilies
of the field that thrive with ease.
So glorious. . . there was not one,
not even fair King Solomon
as brightly dressed as one of these!
They do not toil. What qualities
do flowers have that we might seize
before our time on earth is done?
Consider them. . .
If we, like lilies, choose to please,
with simple faith, the One who sees
all things, we too will have begun
to be as these beneath the sun,
who bend with grace upon the breeze.
*(“. . . Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. . .” Matthew 6: 28-33)
