Jesus said to his disciples:  Therefore I tell you, don't worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear.  For there's more to life than food, more to the body than clothing — isn't there?

Look at the ravens:  they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them.

Can any of you add a single hour to your life by worrying?

Consider the lilies, how they grow.  They neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was never decked out like one of them.  But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you — you of little faith!

Life is beautiful — and God provides!  

+ Luke 12:22-29

Loving God, from ink black ravens to lemon yellow lilies, from the biggest whale to the smallest snail, you hold everything in your strong, open hands.  Help us to remember and sing about how beautiful life was, is, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.

Tell us, where are you finding beauty in your life right now?
