Consider the Lilies of the Backyard




A year ago, I brought home some Easter lilies from church. Cat waited till the blooms fell off and then replanted the plant. This summer they bloomed for the first time in our backyard.
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 6:28-29
