"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do no labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Matthew 6:28-29
"Be strong and very courageous." Joshua 1:7
The flowers I have posted are not lilies, but still they shine each spring in the fields. Peonies in all their glory. And the quotes may not be judged as poetry, but so much of scripture I believe is indeed poetry.
This morning as I watched the committal service for Queen Elizabeth the above scriptures were brought to mind by the words shared as she was laid to rest. She was indeed strong and courageous. She has done her job well. Rest, dear Queen. We will remember the Queen of Hearts.
