Made for another world

"If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in the world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." C. S. Lewis

Word Filled Wednesday ~ Lessons from a Rosebud

Matthew 6:28-30, "And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?"
Rosebud wrapped in cottonwood fluff
The light caught so beautifully on the sparkling threads wrapped around the rose petals. I couldn't help but remember the passage from Matthew that promises God's detailed attention to our lives, above even the delicate care he provides his creation. Wrapped in her gossamer cloak this little bud nudged me to live with actions that speak of a grace soaked life.

Have you been challenged recently by creation to be mindful of God's love?
