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…
