"Look at the lilies and how they grow. they don't work or make their clothing yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for the flowers that they are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you? You have so little faith"
Matthew 6:28-30

Sometimes it seems that we get so caught up worrying about the 'stuff' we miss it.
We miss life.
We miss the beauty of it.
Imagine what it would be to die tonight. 
Wonderful experiences missed.
 Beauty left unadmired.
Love not expressed.

The beauty of flowers is a gift from God.
They speak of his desire to bless us.
A prelude to the promised beauty of heaven.

Yet despite their beauty they don't last.
The only way to be sure not to miss it is to shift the focus. 
Stop worrying about ourselves.
Stop wasting time worrying about the mundane things that we can't change. 
It;s time to start living each day fully embracing the beauty of life that God has put here just for us.

I thought of this quote reading your message,
"Life is what passes while you're busy making other plans" John Lennon
Doesn't say it anywhere near as good as you amazingly put it, but it popped into my head.
I need to admire some flowers today :)
