Consider The Lilies

 


As many of you know, my Dad recently passed away. On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to express heartfelt appreciate to family and friends for the phone calls, text messages, cards, visits, flowers, food, and wonderful acts of kindness during this difficult time. We appreciate your love and support. Each and every one of you are very special to us.

Many of you who knew my Dad may remember his love of music. One of his favorite songs to sing was “Consider the Lilies”. I share the words of this song with you today in hopes that you may find comfort in knowing that God is always there for you. Just as He cares for the lilies in the field, He cares for you. My prayer for you, my friend, is that you know His mercy and love.

Many Blessings!

“Consider the lilies, they don’t toil nor spin

And there’s not a king with more splendor than them.

Consider the sparrows, they don’t plant nor sow,

But they’re fed by the Master who watches them grow.

We have a Heavenly Father above

With eyes so full of mercy

And a heart full of love.

He really cares when your head is bowed low.

Consider the lilies and then you will know.

May I introduce you to this friend of mine,

Who hangs out the stars and tells the sun when to shine.

He kisses the flowers each morning with dew,

But He’s not too busy to care about you.

We have a Heavenly Father above

With eyes so full of mercy

And a heart full of love.

He really cares when your head is bowed low.

Consider the lilies and then you will know.

Yes, Consider the lilies and then you will know.”
