Dear Ones,
Happy weekend to you! Another beautiful day and I can see green leaves on the trees out my window! I just finished cleaning the apartment and made egg dishes and a dessert and did some food prep. Hope you have time to relax and enjoy awonderful weekend. 
Devotions from Judy’s heart
   The snow is finally gone and soon there will be wildflowers peeking out all along the Paul Bunyan trail; first one here or there and soon it will become ablaze with color. Wildflowers are a reminder to me of God’s care for us and how we can give Him all our concerns. Jesus tells the crowd in Matt. 6:25 (Message), “If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion.” He goes on to say that there is far more to life and that all we have to do is to look out in the fields and see all the wildflowers. They don’t have to primp or shop and yet are gorgeous in color and design.  Then in verse 30 he says, “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers-most of which are never seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do His best for you?”
  Jesus is telling us all to relax and not fuss over getting more, looking fashionable, worrying that we are missing out. We can give Him all our concerns and focus our attention on Him and what He is doing. He will provide for every need as He knows better than we do, and will attend to them.
  Seeing the birds of the air and the wild flowers are reminders to us of His care and to remember that if He gives attention to them, He will far more take care of us. We don’t have to live in worry, for He will take every concern we have and will meet each need. Let us rather set our focus on Him and His kingdom and to grow in our love for Him. Worry is a sign that our focus is on ourselves and is a cue that we need to pray and cast every care on Him.
   Let us live a life of trust, knowing each of us is like that flower that He looks upon with great love and will care for all our needs.
Challenge for today: Thank the Lord that He knows your needs and will provide!
Blessings on your weekend and prayers and love, Judy
