An Unexpected Gift

My Dad came by unexpectedly the other day ~ with these!
Aren't they GORGEOUS??
What says "Spring" better than fresh tulips? :)

"...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.

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Therefore take no thought saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."

Matthew 6:28-34

Beautiful tulips! I have tried growing them along with daffodils but the bunnies dig them up during the winter months and eat them. At least I think it is bunnies!

Camille said...

Susan ~ Oh God is so GOOD! :)

Jackie ~ Thank you! :)

Christa ~ I trust you had a lovely Lord's Day...isn't the Lord WONDERFUL? :)

Stacie ~ They really are pretty...I suppose it's nearly time for them to show up. :)

Teresa ~ Thanks! I am glad you are enjoying your visits here...may the Lord bless you!

Heather ~ It was even more special because it was not an "occasion" ~ very thoughtful!

Nadine ~ Don't they just shout "spring"! :) Love it!

Cindy ~ Oh dear...had no idea that bunnies liked to eat them! We rarely see wild bunnies around...maybe if I plant bulbs? :)
