Saving Marigold Seed

 The wonderful French Marigolds are smiling upon my garden
They were planted end of last Summer
To the left
broccoli rabb, lettuce, scallions, spinach, camomile's and what not
 There are a few carrots, cauliflower, celery and radish growing. A free tomato gave gift via the compost It is so thriving in it's given home. Be nice of the whole of the garden planted itself on it's own.

 Happy tomato loves the reflection of the shed wall.
These are the lettuce pots closer to the house for ease of harvest come that day.

 after some time of sitting there opening up each bud it will be set aside to dry
I thought a lot about the seed pods on the flower plants they don't look like much. They take all that energy from the plant. They get trimmed off so the plant can produce more flowers. With out the seed pulling, draining the plant no seeds would come about. God...just splitting the buds to get the seed out to dry.
Gets a real good harvest in due season. Cant plant it till the time is right. Sorta like the lives of humans as well
I love my time in the gardens

Each dog got a walk around the block today as well. Better run Dash to the allergist for shots.

Every time I see marigolds I think of Grandma, my dad's mother, she had these brick flower beds on side of her side walk that lead to the front door and these things where loaded with them, I would pick the dry ones off and scattered them around her home, those buds now remind me of us and CHRIST, the little seeds remind me of us, little children and the outside of the bud are his arms wrapped around us protecting us...
I love to see your hens, they are just so cute.


Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
