I met the other men at the church early this morning and we had a “work day” on the property. We got a lot done and the men have things looking real nice. We mowed, trimmed weeds, and cleared some brush. As you can tell from this picture, we didn’t mow everything. We didn’t mow everything because, well, this is Texas in the spring and some fields just shouldn’t be mowed. This picture was taken on the hill near the side of our 12 acres. There are three crosses that are set up so that when you drive by the church you can see them as a reminder of the love of God and the gospel of Christ. There are even some lights that come on at night so that everyone who drives by has a chance to see them.
The man who mowed that section of the property told me that he just couldn’t cut those flowers. I think he made a wise choice. Those flowers remind me not only of God’s beautiful creation but they also remind me of His faithfulness and provision. Christ said His disciples in Luke 12:
Luke 12:27 “Consider how the wildflowers grow: They don’t labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these! 28 If that’s how God clothes the grass, which is in the field today and is thrown into the furnace tomorrow, how much more will He do for you – you of little faith?”
Yes, I am reminded by those beautiful flowers that God who takes time to provide for the field will always take time to provide for me. Until next time, stay strong in the faith.
