Last week Brylee picked me some flowers. I later found out they're called Spider or Hurricane Lillie's. They grow wild (meaning I never planted them or tried to maintain them!) in my yard until Dean has a chance to mow the lawn and if the mower is down for repairs like it is now the Lillie's are in luck! Any who B picked a mess of them and with her sweet big sisters help she put them in 2 jars, one for mommy and one for Jesus. I have to tell you nothing makes a momma's heart swell with love, joy, peace, and gratitude than hearing your baby say something is for Jesus. Even 3yr old children know in the depths of their very being that you give the first fruits of your labor to God that created you. I wonder why it's so hard for us to remember this? I remember Jenna and Parker making pictures and such for God. I see now in their childlike innocence their worship was so much purer than mine has ever been. I'm humbled to be their mother.
Well she did this on Tuesday and today (Saturday) I looked up at the mantel where they were and noticed my lillies were dying. They were starting to look pretty sad, but Jesus's lillies still looked beautiful! Amazing even though I don't know why I'm amazed! Even the lillies of the field know who their Creator is. They know we serve a MIGHTY GOD and they too want to glorify Him with their beauty.
27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,[a] yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;[a]
tremble before him, all the earth!
