Really Incredible when you think about it

"He replied, 'Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you" -Matthew 17:20

I was looking through some old pictures and I was amazed again at how cool God's world is. It reminds me that when things seem impossible that God can do it. We started out with very small sunflower seeds and they grew into flowers that were taller than us. They had trunks on them as strong as a small tree, in a few short months. I know this because I pulled them up out of the ground recently and it was really hard work.

Here is the "little" sunflower sprouting up out of the ground. The one on the right is a morning glory; we planted them to climb up our sunflowers.

Here is one of the really tall ones. I didn't get any pictures of when they were REALLY tall.

This is our sunflower patch at the very beginning.

Here it is towards the end of summer. We didn't realize that sunflowers end up facing east once their heads are too heavy to follow the sun. So they point in the direction at which they first see the sun. Next year we will be planting the sunflowers on the other side of the yard. I think we might put a blueberry patch in this location.

I also like these pictures which show a big change in just about a month's time:

we're going to plant what, where?
Sounds like more work for me.

Awesome! Thanks for the little reminder. I love stumbling on the little testimonies of how God is good and how those who love Him give praise!

Love you!

Lovely meditations, Beth. I get that overwhelming feeling that God is so amazingly great when I start to think about my body, all its parts and pieces, and how they all work together. Looking at those pictures gives me that same feeling. This stuff can't all be an accident--there is a good God who had this all in mind.
