We may be at the end of pictures of flowers, but you never know what could happen! Can you imagine the flowers and other beautiful plants that will be in heaven? No decay or coldness to cause decay or rot! Maybe they will be singing praises to God with the rest of us, but most likely their beauty will shine as an offering of praise.

What is on your heart today? Whatever it is, God cares about it and wants to carry it for you. We were never made to carry a heavy load. All the cares about this world can seem like a ton on our shoulders. I have been there too many times to count. I know He can make the burden light because He is excellent at carrying the heavy end.

"Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you."{ 1 Peter 5: 6-7} Those of us that are parents know how to care for our children as if they were part of us. God feels the same way for us as His children. He wants to carry the things that trouble us so that we can walk in freedom of fear, disaster or heartache. Before  these things come, He will build a shield of protection around us so that we can endure them. Read the word of God, look to Him, and your shield is strengthened. Who am I that He should care for me? Amazing isn't it?
