Still, peaceful, at rest. This little guy decided that the warm pink, fushia speckled petals of this lily was just the perfect place. The tired, tiny body rested with its little wings folded on its back, in the midst of the heady, sweet perfume of this flower.
This little one found rest in the arrid, sweltering heat that makes it hard to breathe but is the "norm" this time of year. My husband and I feed, and provide fresh water for the birds, deer and racoons. But this tiny little powerhouse found rest in the harsh summer heat and nourishment with no help from anyone. An hour later the little bee was gone.
We all need a place of rest, especially in the harsh dry places of life. To be led where there is REST-oration from weariness, renews our desire to do and complete the necessary tasks of a new day, and the ability to be an effective powerhouse for His purpose.
What a sweet reminder this little bee was today, to slow down and bask in much needed rest. Let's appreciate the beautiful, set-apart places our Father has given us for our renewal, so like the 🐝 bee, we can soar another day fulfilling HIS purpose, just as we were designed to do.
