Look At The Lilies

And why do you worry about clothes?
 Look at how the lilies in the field grow.
 They don’t work or make clothes for themselves.
 But I tell you that even Solomon with his riches
 was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers.
Matthew 6:28 (NCV)

I wouldn't say I worry about clothes however I do like them and get at least one or two items every season for variety.  I then discard one or two that have been "used up," meaning it is stained or shabby or I've outgrown it(!!)Sometimes they go in bulk and I gradually add sales items because I rarely buy anything at the original price.  I've been trying to replace my black shirts and pants with a variety of colors and now I'm adding some patterns.Sometimes I do without and wish I could have found just the item for which I was shopping or I found it and can't afford it and have to go home without it...


I just realized that I do worry about clothes.

Thank you, Lord, for providing beautiful things for me to wear and enjoy.  I SO do not deserve your gifts but praise you for them.
