CONSIDER THE LILIES OF THE FIELD.

June 25, 2018

 

 

 

It was the day before we were due to leave for a month abroad.

 

I lay in bed.

 

Wide awake.

 

Too early to get up

 

And agonized.

 

  • Did I pack enough? (Ehhh….)

  • Did I pack too much?  (Probably.)

  • Did I pack the right stuff?  (No.)

  • Did I pack the wrong stuff? (Yes.)

 

I no longer had the –

 

  • “whatever,”

  • anything goes,

  • I’ll wing it,

  • I’ll borrow/buy it,

 

attitude of my twenties.

 

I’m a staid seventy-four. I want to have the right clothes. For the right places. The right weather. At the right time.

 

As a Northern Floridian it’s dresses, shorts and skimpy tops in summer. Jeans, colorful leggings and a floppy sweater in winter.

 

I’d put a lot of thought into packing for this trip.

 

Thought myself into a cold panic.

 

An uncomfortable place to be.

 

And out of nowhere came the thought –

 

“Consider the lilies of the field.”

 

I calmed down.

 

Got up.

 

Found my Bible and the passage in Matthew 6:28.

 

It gave me what I needed.

 

It’s who I am.

 

What I am

 

How I behave.

 

How I live.

 

That matters.

 

Not how I dress.

 

Cyber hugs and many blessings all.
