Spring
As I was reading this morning (I am now in Mark ... I told you my reading pattern is set out oddly in this scheme), I came across this sentence in the passage where Jesus is feeding the 5,000 -

Mark 6 v 39 ... Jesus got them all to sit down in groups of fifty or a hundred—they looked like a patchwork quilt of wildflowers spread out on the green grass!

I just thought it was so descriptive, and a reminder that God gave us so much beauty in nature.

Disclaimer, for my new f-list ...

I do read the Bible every day, and every so often will post a random thought. Some are just to help me remember what I actually read this morning. They are not meant to upset or offend anyone ... Please feel free to ignore.

I love the image, the sentiment of comparing people with the land, if that makes sense

What a wonderful description - which translation are you reading from?

Not offended at all.

Alright, note taken. :) I'm not religious, but you'd have to do much more than post happy thoughts about wildflowers on your personal journal, if you wanted to offend me.
