(a piping plover inturrupted by a wandering gull / Julie Cook / 2020)

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life,
what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body,
what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns,
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon
in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven,
will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’
or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father
knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his
righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.
Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:25-34

    This is why I avoid taking selfies–I have a strange fear of photobombing myself. J.

  3. Good stuff, Julie! Hubby and i just watched, “Moll Flanders” again. Something I like about that movie, her life is interrupted by this photo bombing sparrow and she knows what that means, how the Lord is telling her to remember the sparrow.

    Love the last part of that verse, too, “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow,
    for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” There’s a saying I love, “never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.” I’m an over thinker, I’ve often got all the troubles mapped out, so it’s good reminder. 🙂

    I have always loved this passage from Matthew’s gospel. Do not be anxious… I always pause there & linger for awhile. Do not be anxious. Do not be anxious. Yes, indeed…💕
