Flowers and Sparrows

A few days ago, I saw a group of little purple dots, scattered over a little patch of grass. I bent over to get a closer look, and discovered that those dots were actually really small flowers!

Seeing the small flowers reminded me of something comforting that Jesus said many years ago. Jesus was telling His people about God's love and how He will provide for our needs:

"Why worry about clothes? Look how the wild flowers grow. They don't work hard to make their clothes. But I tell you that Solomon with all his wealth wasn't as well clothed as one of them. God gives such beauty to everything that grows in the fields, even though it is here today and thrown into a fire tomorrow. He will surely do even more for you! Why do you have such little faith?" Matthew 6:28-30 (CEV)

And here's what Jesus had to say about those birds that fly over my head and land those really thin power lines:

"Look at the birds in the sky! They don't plant or harvest. They don't even store grain in barns. Yet your Father in heaven takes care of them. Aren't you worth more than birds?" Matthew 6:26 (CEV)

I have absolutely no idea what kind of flower I almost stepped on, but I can count that not only does my Heavenly Father know but He cares for me too!
