Does Worrying Make You Do Silly Things?

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for godsgrowinggarden.com photo SundayLily_zps0ce0s1cr.jpg
"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?  And why do you worry about clothes?  See how the lilies of the field grow.  They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these."  Matthew 6:27, 28 & 29



I like the part in this verse where Jesus is talking about lilies growing - "they do not labor or spin."  That got me thinking - "what would a worrying lily look like?"  It's quite comical really:
- I imagine a "worry lily" would pop in and out of the ground and then before opening it's flower I imagine that it would have to first look at the plants beside itself. 
- The "worry lily" might open it's flowers but then close it again feeling inadequate. 
- The "worry lily" might not even emerge from the ground because the outside world is just too scary being fearful of rain and sunshine.
Yes - this is all very silly but isn't that what we must look like from the heavens when we worry?  Worry makes us do ridiculous things.

Jesus compares the appearance of King Solomon and a lily of the field - even going as far as to say that a lily is dressed more spectacularly than a king.  God provides clothing for the lesser creation, and He provides all the more for us.

When you find yourself worrying this week - pay attention to what strange actions worry makes you do.....and then try to correct and trust in God the next time you are about to worry.

365 Days of Being THANKFUL - DAY#186

by AngieOuelletteTower for godsgrowinggarden.com photo Thankful_zpsd6bc7c2d.jpg
A few months ago I decided that I would start a new series on this blog called: "365 Days of Being THANKFUL".  The more I thought about it the more I felt led by God but then at the same time I started wondering if I would be able to do this for a whole year!  One month of being thankful is measurable let alone hundreds of days!
So, I am half of the way through my challenge - I must be able to find something each day that I am thankful for since I am so blessed.

5 Must-Grow Veggies for Home Gardeners #3

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for godsgrowinggarden.com photo 2012-08-02_zpsrcnezfbf.jpg
5 Must-Grow Veggies for Home Gardeners


Deciding what you are going to plant in your garden can be an overwhelming task especially if you have limited garden space.  Over the next few weeks I will be sharing with you the top 5 veggies that I think are the most important for the Home Gardener to be growing in their garden (I will also be including recipes).


#3 - GREENS
By "Greens" I am referring to Kale, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Arugula & I even lumped in Lettuce.  These greens are so full of nutrients and are considered to be the Modern Superfood -  therefore they are a Must-Grow Vegetable for your garden.
