About Considerations

Considerations is a place for Lilies of the Field, Inc. to write about various things; mostly spiritual things, although we might post about special events or things going on in our company. There is a motivation behind what we do at Lilies of the Field, Inc. and it is to express the life of God through beauty. The beauty God surrounds us with is unbounded and free, it is everywhere, just as God is. I suppose the beauty is just one way He expresses His nature, it is directly an expression of Him.

The object is to lift depression, bring encouragement, to bring healing and peace to those in need. It is a wonderful, God-inspired movement, because God is love. Join the movement, and pass it on. We at Lilies…

Hollyhocks are tall slender plants with leaves similar to grape leaves, with different lobes or sections. The…

Guilt

Guilt is like a plague. It causes us to react to it and say: “I cannot be guilty of anything lest I be crushed and destroyed. Therefore I must guard against it by being ready to throw it off at every turn. I will examine every event and motive of everyone to be certain that…

Jesus is Real

It is commonly said that “Jesus died to forgive your sin,” but why do I care? What does that mean today? In a society where Jesus increasingly seems irrelevant, what does it mean that Jesus took my sin? The Bible teaches us that death, sickness (slow death), poverty, and every kind of evil came into…

Illusion vs. Reality

I read a story of a man who was in WWII in China. There were Chinese who were fighting alongside the American Troops. One Chinese man befriended the American Captain and somehow showed him to see through the eyes of God. God would never see war for He is Peace. He would see beauty where…

This Christmas I bought my dad a book documenting miracles, Where Miracles Happen by Joan Wester Anderson.  As we read through some of the stories together I remembered that I had experienced my own not so small miracle a couple of winters ago. I was snowmobiling with a small group of 4 or 5 on…
