Lilies of the Field

My husband and I enjoy going to the park in Chattahoochee for a picnic lunch after Sunday morning church services, it’s such a pretty place on the Apalachicola River.  The river is very wide and there is always plenty of birds, and lots of activity going on with people fishing and launching their boats.

A large patch of white lilies bobbing their heads in the breeze caught my eye under the old Apalachicola bridge and lunch was forgotten.  I guess a bulb had floated down the river during one of the floods from somebodies garden and picked that spot to take root. There were so many it was like snow on the ground.  As I was photographing these lovely flowers I thought about a verse in the Bible:

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Matthew 6:28,29.
