One thing about living in central Alabama is the variety of weather on a daily basis. I know that some of you who have had snow for weeks might appreciate this. Yesterday it was sleeting ( I still am hoping to see just one snowfall this winter), and today the temperature is in the mid 70's. This afternoon I got outside and walked around in my yard looking at everything that needs to be done before I actually begin planting. I have a fence in the back that separates our yard from the wooded area. Last summer we had the area cleaned so I was not expecting any growth there. When I looked behind the fence I saw these daffodils....we call them buttercups in Alabama. They were absolutely beautiful and I had done nothing to help them grow. Immediately I remembered the verse in Matthew 6:28 where God is telling us not to worry or be anxious. " Look at the lilies (buttercups)and learn how they grow; they neither toil nor spin,but even Solomon was not arrayed like one of these." God spoke to me through these buttercups and reminded me that He takes care of His creation. Several times these past weeks I've been reminded to be still/quiet and listen. I heard God speak and I had to bring them inside to remind me again tomorrow (lest I forget). So.....I put them in a jar and they are on my kitchen table. God is so good!
