My pastor mentioned this verse in his sermon this morning. It reminded me of this post and I wanted to re-share it with ya’ll. Have a wonderful Sunday my friends!
Luke 12:24-26, 31
Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

This one spoke to me so deeply because it is so pertinent to my love of nature and to my “Soul Spring Magic” post, the story of a young man finding peace and strength in nature when he took the time to listen to God speaking through it.
I actually relate deeply with all the content Lacy puts on her blog. She is becoming a major conduit for the Spirit to speak into my life, my heart, and my ministry. She has a refreshing writing style: down-to-earth, unassuming, personable, real… and yet…
