The Naming of the Blog

I decided to name my blog Lily of the Field from the Scripture that reads:

"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...But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. " Matthew 6: 25-33
I do tend to worry and this passage helps me remember not too! Our Heavenly Father does care for us and has always been faithful, so I just need to be faithful to Him. The rest will fall into place. How comforting!
