Consider the Lilies: An Invitation to Rest

Stargazer Lily (Stacy Wills, 2013)

Why is it so hard 
for us to rest?  Did not
 John recline upon
 his Savior's breast at table?
Follow his example.
Do the lilies of the field 
toil and spin? Yet
no one thinks that it's a sin
for them to glorify God 
the way they do,
dressed more finely
than Solomon, and that
not of their doing.
Consider, oh yes...
consider them, when tempted
to worry about anything.

  1. Oooo - so lovely... And I love the name "Stargazer Lily." Gazing into the cosmos in awe of being - my favorite activity :) Lovely words in your poem too. Just rest... yes... Just being who we are, that is enough...

  2. Your art is stunning! This is absolutely amazing.

  3. Thank you, Christine and Cindi for your kind words. This medium of alcohol inks really lends itself to "letting go" of the outcome and trusting in the process itself. Blessings to you both!
