After chapter three of Philippians ends with the Lord’s great power to transfigure our body and subject all things to Himself. Chapter 4 begins with an exhortation to stand firm in this One.
It may be subtle and hidden, but the flower in this photo is in a struggle. The cypress spurge, on the left, are an invasive species. And though it flowered first, the Canadian Anemone, a native species, is standing firm and holding her ground.
