Nothing beats a boy’s picnic and the other day it was fish and chips (always a success) at Riccarton Bush.
After that a walk through Riccarton Bush and the gathering of cicada skins to put on mum’s bed for a good scare.
The walk through the bush reminded me again about the importance of strong roots as taught in the Bible.
“But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17: 7-8
27Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
The NIV is less specific or so you wish politically correct by being more inclusive and this verse is translated as:
27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
And with this in mind the following pics top close off.
