Nothing Can Be Hidden

 
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundaySecret_zps2wywi9a4.jpg
 
Nothing Can Be Hidden

WOW - this passage is something that all of the modern world should study!  From the media to politicians to teachers and students - we are all concerned with privacy.  On a more personal level - I'm sure that we can all recall things that we have said or done in private that we wouldn't want anyone ever to know in public.  There are 4 things that popped into my head when I read these verses - they are:  Secrets, Motives, Lies & Hypocrisy..... let me explain:
 
1.  Secrets  - "there is nothing concealed or hidden that will not be made known" - whether it's a secret whispered to another person or a secret about yourself that only you know - God knows all.  Whether you are divulging government intelligence secrets to the press or telling your spouse about personal information confided to you by a friend - nothing can be hidden from God.  Not only does our Lord already know that specific secret but He also knows that you have betrayed your promise of secrecy.  There is no such thing as a secret kept from God. 

I also believe that many secrets lead to gossip and gossip is harmful to both the gossiper and the gossipee.  Let's be careful with secrets.
 
2.  Motives - are the push or drive behind our actions and words.  Why do we do what we do? and why do we say what we say?  Motives are not seen by the human eye (although I know that sometimes our motives shine through our actions and words).  Sometimes, even we do not realize our own motives at the time of the action.  However, our motives ARE known by God and can never be disguised from Him.
 
3.  Lies - It might not be in our lifetime but the truth will come out in the end - even if it's not until Judgment Day - the truth will be revealed.  Dishonesty must be so time consuming - keeping track of what you said to whom and how you might have to respond in the future so that the lie remains secret.  Honesty is so much more relaxing and easy. 
 
4.  Hypocrisy - falseness, insincerity, fake, two-facedness.  Those that try to be someone that they are not always show their "true colors" eventually.  Now, a hypocrite is different from somebody striving to change and be more Christ-like - the latter is sincere work whereas hypocrisy is sin.
 
Remember - any sin when confessed to God is forgiven by our gracious & merciful Lord through our Savior Jesus Christ.   


We need to live every second of our lives in truth knowing that nothing can be hidden from God!

Flowers by Color - YELLOW


by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo 2016-08-16_zpspsxasfw7.jpg
Flowers by Color - YELLOW


This is my second installment of a new post series featuring flowers by color.  For the next few months I will pick a different color and share my favorite flowers of that color (these lists are NOT a complete list of all flowers of that color, simply just my favorites).  This week is YELLOW flower week.


Certain featured flowers have links to previous posts on this blog - please feel free to click on these links to view the entire posts (they will be how-to-grow or maintenance posts).


Firstly, you will need to know the difference between annual, perennial & biennial:


Annual Plant - completes its lifecycle in one season/year.  By "lifecycle" I mean from germination to seed formation.  Here are some examples of annual plants:  green beans, petunia, sage, sunflower, morning glory and so much more.

Perennial Plant - lives for more than 2 years but produces seed in one season without dying afterward.  Some examples of perennials: most fruit trees like apple, vegetables like asparagus or leeks, day lilies, peonies and so much more.

Biennial Plant - 2 years to complete its lifecycle.  Examples are: parsley, caraway, foxglove, parsnips and so much more.




Tulip
This is a perennial flower that blooms very early in Springtime.
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo DSCF0404_zpsz3osmnnj.jpg

Forsythia
This is perennial shrub/bush that is very easy to grow.  I would recommend trimming when it gets larger otherwise it will become out of control.  This blooms even earlier in the Spring than tulips.

Rose
I did a series on this blog five years ago called "Frank's Flowers" - Frank is my dad and he is a master at growing roses.
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo 013_zpsjke7ljo5.jpg

Zinnia
This is an annual flower.  Zinnias are susceptible to powdery mildew but otherwise a joy to grow.

SUNFLOWERS - 7 Different Yellow Varieties


Vincent's Choice

This sunflower variety was named after my favorite Impressionist artist: Vincent VanGogh.

Tiny "Giant Sungold"
click HERE to view
The original name of this sunflower made be chuckle "Giant Sungold" since the flowers were quite miniature in sunflower terms.  I renamed this variety "Tiny Giant Sungold".

Giant Gray Stripe
click HERE to view
I could never understand why this was called "Gray Stripe" since there isn't a bit of gray in this flower.  Then a friend of mine answered my confusion when she said: "that's because of the gray stripe on the seed" - hahahaha - that makes sense.

Starburst Blaze

This unique sunflower was a mixture of 3 distinct colored sunflowers including this light lemon yellow color.  (You will just have to click on the link above to view the other two colors).

Mammoth

This variety was the star of my garden in 2012.  It truly is a mammoth beauty.

Soraya

I was not the only one that enjoyed this sunflower variety - insects also enjoyed every inch.  They devoured these flowers.  If you try to grow organically (like I do) then I suggest growing a different sunflower variety.

Monet's Palette Mixture
click HERE to view
I think there must have been a mistake with this sunflower seed packet because I only had 2 colors: yellow and a dark red (almost brown).  If you know anything about the artwork of Monet then you know that these two colors certainly do NOT define his mastery.
