Sunday Photo Reflection #30: Another Walk on the Wild Side—a Haiku

Why do you worry? Look at the wildflowers of the field and how they grow. They don’t work, they don’t make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. If God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will most certainly care for you. Don’t worry, have faith!

Midweek Boost: What’s Deeper Than Love?

I was helping my nephew with his assignment, when I saw a pensive expression that was far too intense to be just about his school work.“What’s up with that look?” I asked.
