I Expect to Hear it Demand "FEEEEEEED MEEEE!"
I took this picture a couple of days ago. It's bigger than this now. Amanda joked that it will break into the house and eat us while we are sleeping.
There are potted plants lost under the gourd vine.
It reaches out to touch you when walk onto the deck.
And to think, ONE SEED did all of that.
Luke 8:11-15 This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God.Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved.Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away.The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop. Isaiah 55:11 so is my wordthat goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purposefor which I sent it.
