Adi Can . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Consider the lilies of the field
Here she considers the dandelions thinking she will be glad to be walking and sniffing some more, i.e. "let's get going now."
Do Not Worry
25 "Therefore I say to you, do not worry 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? 26Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
27Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31"Therefore do not worry, saying, "What shall we eat?' or "What shall we drink?' or "What shall we wear?' 32For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
From the Sermon on the Mount (The Beatitudes), Matthew 6:25-34 (link)
The scriptures tell us to seek the kingdom of God first and all else will come naturally.
I like Adi's style. Get outside and just enjoy the flowers.
The dandelions are Texas Wildflowers, we don't cut them when they aren't bothering anyone.
Jamie -- Adi loves to go out and look at the flowers. She might roll in them if she were permitted.
Lucy -- I don't think we will make it to the bluebonnets (also Texas Wildflowers) this year except for the ones growing along I-45.
Cheyenne -- She does look pretty. We are afraid she knows it too, real bad for treating her like a dog.
All -- Adi is safely deposited with son Mitch and his wife, Carmen. She will stay with them for a couple of weeks.
