field of wildflowers

how has it already been a week since i posted on this thing? time flies when you’re having fun! {OR when you’re totally swamped with nursing and naps… but i really can’t complain!}

anyway, i just wanted to share with you these RANDOM pictures from the other day.

see, there’s this pretty field that i drive by every other day. it was the most gorgeous yellow a few days ago because it is just covered in wildflowers. every time i passed it, i kept thinking how fun it would be to do a photo shoot in it! i casually mentioned that to Husbuddy once on our way to Lowes…

and on the way back home he pulled over and told me to get out! he said he’d do a loop around the block so i could frolick in the flowers and take some photos. now, i didn’t have my nice camera which i wish i had, but i still had fun frolicking and clicking. hee hee. field of wildflowers5

isn’t Husbuddy the best? he sees a little dream of mine and does whatever he can to make it happen. he thinks it’s crazy and silly and a little random but he loves me and so he kicks me out of the car.

you guys, i don’t know if it was the fact that i was just using my phone camera or what but these photos do NOT do this field any sort of justice!   field of wildflowers2

while i was standing in the field and trying to ignore the cars that drove by and probably thought i was crazy i kept thinking about what Jesus said about the lilies of the field.

 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,  yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:25-34

aren’t we not more valuable than these flowers? these spring flowers that disappear so quickly? i feel like Jesus is giving us an incredulous look while he is saying this. he’s saying, you’re CRAZY to worry! God has it all under control! He will provide for you better than the birds or the flowers. they are so beautiful and yet He made you MORE beautiful.

do not worry, my friend.

and as i was standing in the midst of that field, feeling a little bit crazy for the frolicking… i felt peace.

and wouldn’t you know the next day when i drove by this field the flowers were mostly gone. hmm… guess i’ll have to wait till next year to get out my good camera and do some more frolicking!

    Beautiful!! Nature is hard to capture. My scripture passage, today, is Psalm 8 – God is awesome and all he created is incredible!! I’m glad your hubby was sensitive to your need to frolick. Can you imagine what heaven will be like?? Have a beautiful day! Sherri
