A long winter and a busy spring have kept us from the chore of mowing. Fitting it in between rains can be challenging, but once we get it done, I feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. For me it is more than a homeowner chore, it also reminds me of God’s care for us. Jesus said the following in Matthew 6:
Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Admittedly, there are times when I wonder what God has in store for us. But His faithful care for us, as well as all His creation, assures me that my Father knows.
Therefore do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
If my Father knows, then I don’t need to be anxious about what I don’t know. I just need to seek Him and trust Him. By the way it rained shortly after I took these pictures.
