We have had some weird and wild weather lately, yet I felt this week like spring had finally arrived. The subjects of the above pictures validated my feelings of anticipation for arrival of my favorite season. I LOVE to see the trillium in bloom. The various colors and parts of these treasures of God’s creation never cease to excite me.
Phil is very patient as I drag him around to see each of the varieties, many of which he helped transplant from further up on the hill in the woods. We have moved over nine different varieties to the edge of the backyard where the woods begin. We enjoy these beautiful flowers and especially appreciate the variety. Today, I asked my father to come outside with me as I took these pictures so you can see his hand holding the blooms toward the camera. These pictures were all taken today in our backyard. We are SO BLESSED!
Jesus refers to the beauty of wild flowers in this passage in Matthew 6: 28-30
28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?”
These verses remind me of God’s great love and care for me.
Jesus said these wildflowers should remind me as well.
I hope these pictures inspire you and remind you of
just how much God loves and cares for you.
