"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Word-Filled Wednesday: Clothing

The beauty of this world is astounding to me. Yet, most of it is to be found on temporal things. Flowers. Animals. Sunsets. Mountains. God makes these temporal things amazingly pleasing to the eye.

Yet Man, the only eternal aspect of this earth, worries about appearance.

God cares for us more than this flower, or this butterfly. How can we be concerned about our clothing--about how we look? He will provide. You can count on it.

Just FYI: I actually took this picture myself, on a "solitary visit" to the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids (the day away was actually a special gift to me from my husband back in early 2003). Each year during March and April, they have an exhibit called "Butterflies are Blooming," that has a huge number of butterflies of many types. It is a wonderful place to visit, and I try to go each year.

Be sure to stop by The 160 acre woods for more visual inspiration from Scripture!
