My God's Garden

This garden in 2011 yielded this year two things. I was blessed with squash and a magnificent Sunflower of my God's Garden this year. Why you ask do I plant a garden that I call my God's Garden. It is a faith garden. It takes good soil, proper handling,and blessings from above to make this garden work. I know you are thinking that she could have just said a garden, but it is not just a garden. My garden is something I do to put hope in my life. When nothing else goes right you plant something that will rise up above it all, and the Sunflower will do just that.

The first year I planted a Sunflower after a hail storm. I had beautiful plants of tomatoes and lots of blooms, but not one tomato came forth in my garden. I wondered why, when I had given up and unearthed the plants, when they had reached 5 feet tall and really filled out bushy. I had fertilized them, and watered them, but nothing happened but flowers. I asked myself , if the cold ice had damaged them, and wondered could that be. That happened on April 16, 2010 in Oklahoma City. Then I looked at a harvest, and it was not one of fruit and vegetables, but one of paying half my car payments off to damages on my automobile by the hail. I chose to live with a few dents from the hail and in turn to lower my payments and save in the long run. That year it put people to work repairing roof tops and automobiles. We had millions in damage all over the city. Out of all this , then that summer pops up the Sunflower I called "KIndred Spirits". Did we have a harvest that year? Well now I look upon it, and I see a few more months to go, and I will be able to pay off my car. That will save my family at least $300 a month to buy groceries or for whatever we need. So that years God's Garden towered over by "Kindred Spirits" brought forth a different kind of harvest. A harvest of financial blessings in disguise.

This years God's Garden brought forth a beautiful magnificent towering Mammoth Sunflower that has yielded over 2000 seeds, and I am some how going to take those seeds and by the faith of God turn them into something that can help others and bring forth blessings. This flower rose up in the midst of a drought of 109 temperatures. Even though once more my tomatoes never yielded anything but blossoms, then I look up to the harvest and realize our environment I think is in trouble. We have no bees here to pollinate the flowers of the fruit. I saw one bee or two this year, then I saw no more coming to the blossoms. At first there were a few butterflies, and not even the butterflies are coming.  However the squash planted did bring forth an abundance of vegetables. I am not sure how that happened. 

I believe like the little boy who went to see Jesus and in the crowds he had a fish and a loaf of bread as I remember this from my childhood. Jesus took it and multiplied it, and brought forth an abundance to feed the people who were there to hear him preach. That little boy brought forth a seed of faith. I believe that when we plant a seed of faith, then it will blossom for us more than we could ever see. My God's Garden is always a garden that I will share with others. For in it , when there is an abundance, then those around me are offered it's harvest. It is the way God's people are suppose to live. Take your blessings and your harvest and do not hold it all for yourself, but share with those in need. May this day bring forth a harvest in your life that will always make you remember what I said to you about planting a God's Garden. It starts with one mammoth flower that reaches toward the sun. It is a symbol of hope and strength that towers over our lives. As you plant it, then ask for the blessings to come forth from God.

      If you want a harvest you have to first scatter seeds. I love the way you applied this concept to other aspects of life. Great write!
