“And why do you worry about clothes? Learn how the wildflowers of the field grow: they don’t labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these! If that’s how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won’t He do much more for you–you of little faith?” Matthew 6:28-30

Why DO we worry? How much did the Pilgrims worry? It’s Thanksgiving week here in America, nearly 400 years after the beginning of the famed Plimoth Plantation. As history tells us, the faith of our founding fathers was their constant. I’ve come to learn and appreciate that their faith was a major stronghold in their daily lives; to “give it up to the Lord” and not worry–He will provide.

Worries in our lives today take so much energy, so much time; worrying wastes time. If we have no control of the future, I sure do agree to take note of the wildflowers in the fields. Their beauty repeats each season and if that is believed to be from God, I know I need not worry for He loves me so much more.

This week especially, I am making an effort to pray for everyone I’ve met in the past year, for everyone who purchased a copy of my book, Rocks Through My Window, and for everyone yet to share the reading. If we all take one day this week (or even two seconds if that’s all you’ve got) to pray for each other, as the Pilgrims did regularly, I’d suspect this Thanksgiving season would “bloom like wildflowers in the fields” with less stress, less worries, and more peace in our hearts. May this Thanksgiving be a joyful day of praise, worship, and thankfulness in your hearts with your family and friends, and with a thought of those who came before us nearly 400 years ago. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
