I used to complain that no-one ever bought me flowers so I just had to buy them for myself. I love having flowers and plants in the house. I live in the centre of the city so it brings some of nature into my home. Even though they make me sneeze, I love the smell filling the house. I love the beautiful colours brightening the room.
They also remind me not to worry. I'm not very good at that. I like to have things under control, to know what is happening, to know what is going to happen. I don't deal well with uncertainty, so I have to remind myself that I know and trust that God knows all this. He knows me so much better than I know myself. He knows the beginning and the end of all things. He has power over everything and all his plans for me are good. I don't need to know what is going to happen because I know God.
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin...If God so clothes the grass of the field...will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious...but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you.
