Consider the Lilies


See how the lilies of the field grow.

They do not labor or spin.

Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.

If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, 

which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire,

will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

    So do not worry...

Matthew 6:28-31

What a generous bunch of lilies on your finely polished table.
Lovely light in there.
Don't want to be facetious, but will He notice that I have a great big tear in my favourite trousers :-)
