Blue Eyed Mary (Collinsia verna Nutt.)
Returning from a 3 day seminar we stopped at a nature area to hike. The sky was cloudy and rain was forecast. We decided to hike anyway hoping to beat the rain. During the hike we found this impressive field of Blue Eyed Mary wild flowers. We were over half the way through the hike and it started to rain. Then the rain came down in buckets. It wasn't cold enough to bother us very much. When we got back to the car we changed clothes.
It was worth it to find these flowers and my wife was not bothered with the rain either. We had a good time.
I enjoy nature and the beauty it has. Sometimes you have to be willing to go through the elements to find God's creative handiwork.
It is the same with our walk with Jesus. Searching the Scriptures we will find many jewels that will give us strength when we push through to find them.
Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know."
