Look at the Lilies of the Field

This time of year things get hectic for me. On top of the usual hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping and decorating, concerts at church, Christmas cards, baking, etc. I try so hard to focus on God. Where would I be without Him? Lost. That’s where. Besides Christmas preparation, I am trying to get all of my students ready for their finals. I was feeling very stressed this week. I went to God in prayer. I went, as they say, before the throne. The verse that came to me is this. “Consider the lilies of the field. They toil not….” In other words, I am to handle my responsibilities but keep it all in the PROPER perspective. Guess what? This is the perfect opportunity for me to share my sketch of a rubrim lily! I want to be a sweet, lovely lily this week…

      Gosh I’m glad you like it! Rubrim lilies are a favorite of mine. They smell intoxicatingly sweet. My favorite sketches are still my onions—but after the onions it’s the lily. I took another look at all of them again—and the lily is better than I thought! Thanks

  2. Lovely sketch and this Bible verse is a favorite of mine too. Blessings on your teaching!

      Thanks, Ellen! I guess some of us are just born teachers—you know how it is, right? Even when I was tiny I was dragging neighbors and cousins home to teach them or share with them. It’s definitely in my blood and in my heart.
