Reflections

Not a light made by man
Can compare to the dew –
To the millions of strands
Which the morning makes new


Not a word I can shout
Can come close to God’s Word
When the flower speaks out
In her silence He’s heard.

“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)

  5. So beautiful, Heidi–your meditative poem and the photos. I, too, have been awakened to the wonders of nature shouting silent praises to their Maker. What a glorious God–and we get to call him Abba!

  8. I love the reflections in rain and dew drops. Reflecting the big world in miniature around them. May our thoughts reflect God’s thoughts in at least a small way
