I [the LORD] will love them freely...
I will be like the dew and the night mist to Israel;
he shall grow and blossom like the lily
and cast forth his roots...
Our son and DIL gave me these lilies for Mother's Day.
I took this photo thinking I would use this verse for today's post:
And why should you be anxious about clothes?
Consider the lilies of the field...
they neither toil nor spin.
Yet I [Jesus] tell you,
even Solomon in all his magnificence
was not arrayed like one of these.
Matthew 6:28, 29
But upon consulting the concordance of my Bible, I came upon the verses in Hosea.
I thought, "Wow, they will apply to Grandbaby!"
You see, our daughter is 3 days past her due date
and we're all a little anxious.
So this is the promise I rest on:
When God says it's time,
she/he will grow and blossom and cast forth her/his roots
deep into life with Jesus.
Abundant blessings to you, friends!
