Lilies of the field...

Where the Mariposa Lilies live.

 Mariposa Lily aka:  Sego Lily
(Calochortus nuttallii)

Plains Prickly Pear Cactus
(Opuntia polyacantha)
These beauties are growing out on our prairie in all their glory.
And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
~Matthew 6:28-34

  2. "Anxiety sticks like glue." Oh so true.

  9. Oh, Jody, thank you for those verses. It's 2:00 a.m., and I'm awake with anxiety. I memorized those verses long ago, desiring to put them deep in my mind and heart, but still I need to hear them again. Your flowers are beautiful.

  10. Beautiful!
    "He's the Lily of the Valley! He's the bright and morning star! He's the fairest of 10,000 to my soul!"
    I love the way you find His beauty around you, good Jody!

  11. Beautiful Jody! I love your posts about summer on the prairie, with all the pretty flowers!

  12. So beautiful, Jody! And such a great verse to think about every single day! xSusan

  13. God is good! It's amazing to see how He clothes the flowers, which may never be seen by anyone...except a very alert Montana ranch lady, lol. Thanks for sharing the loveliness!
