The Easy, Lasting Organic Lawn
When I began the quest to build our lawn 10 years ago, I knew nothing but three facts:
1. We had sod that had been laid on top of hard clay and rocks that gave the grass roots little chance to thrive,
2. Our yard was next to a field of weeds (at the time), and
3. I wanted the lawn to be safe for us, our friends, their children and pets.
It became fascinating to understand how God created this world to work together in a gentle balance and how we were given the privilege to cultivate it. I knew it would take some time to have a healthy lawn that required less effort with each year. I am sharing this paper so that you can bypass my learning curve that included time, study, mistakes, frustration, perseverance, and doubt. The main goal is to strengthen the grass. Strengthening the grass takes care of most of the other problems. Let’s start with why we want a healthy lawn to begin with…
Choice or Chaff—The Daniel 12/Matthew 3 Connection
“Those who wait on God to receive discernment, direction and wisdom, considering their steps deeply, will shine so brightly that their lives will enlighten, warn, admonish, and teach those around them without speaking a word. Their lives will gleam with God’s purifying message of hope and salvation, and many will be drawn to God and His ways through their brightness.” (from the Hebrew word study of Daniel 12:3 in Choice Children, Part 1)
Shine like the stars
In reference to God’s people in the end times, Daniel 12:10 says “Many will be purged, purified and refined.”
When I think of the word purge, I think of getting rid of junk I don’t need; you may think of something else. However, when I took a closer look at the meaning of the Hebrew word in this passage for purge (bârar), it means to clarify, brighten, examine, polish, prove, and to make choice; its meaning connotes the attention given to a favorite. (This may include getting rid of junk, but you can see how rich the meaning is.)
Jesus said, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit and that your fruit would remain…” (John 15:16a) Father chose us in Jesus before the foundation of the world that we would be holy and blameless before Him. (Ephesians 1:4)
"Whoever receives one child like this in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me does not receive Me, but Him who sent Me." Mark 9:37

Zephania's Song, He Quiets Me.
Sometimes I have days. Days with disturbance in my emotions or mind. Days when I look up to my Father and ask for mercy and clarity. Last Monday was one of those days. Words that would describe my emotions were “limited, constricted, disquieted.” A friend listened to my heart and prayed for me. I went to my Father’s Word. Ahhh!
I am Sealed! Blessings in July!
I pray blessings on your month of July! I recently learned that the word “Blessed” (used in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5 and other passages) means “satisfied in the indwelling Holy Spirit.” I pray that, no matter what I’m going through or how I feel, I will be grateful and have an undercurrent of satisfaction in the Holy Spirit Who indwells me. Thank you, Lord, for choosing me out of this world for You and Your kingdom to live in love with You!
I am Sealed.
The Who I am Journal Collection is loaded with 12 months of encouragement for you, a friend, or anyone who needs comfort and hope. The beautiful word for July is SEALED!

God leads us
In Romans 8:14, Paul writes, “All who are led by the Spirit of God, these are the uihos (pronounced hwee-os’) of God.” Uihos (νίός) is generally translated as sons, but its fuller meaning in the original Greek is “those whom God loves and cherishes as a Father.” So, Romans 8:14 reads, “All who are led by the Spirit of God are those whom He loves and cherishes as a Father,” or “The Father leads His beloved children by His Spirit.”
In a nutshell, our current update from Flower Girl Greetings is:

The Veil has been torn!
The Day of Atonement Art Card is from the Feasts of Israel Fulfilled Collection at www.flowergirlgreetings.com
On that Roman execution stake, Yeshua cried, “It is finished!” Our sin was crushed and our redemption was secured. The thick veil was torn from top to bottom and opened wide to welcome us into God’s presence! The deep tones of these ancient blue, purple, and crimson dyes were extracted from the mollusks found along the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Their vibrant hues declare the message – There is no fear, only peace and joy!
Our First Fruits
The Feast of First Fruits is celebrated on the Sunday that falls after Passover during The Feast of Unleavened Bread. It is a day of praise to the Lord for the early spring harvest and His reviving of the earth after the winter’s repose.
Blessings, love and shalom to you, dear friends, during this month of renewal, refreshing rains and resurrection!
Our mission at Flower Girl Greetings is to magnify the beauty of God’s Word and make it easy for you to share powerful encouragement in a tangible and lasting way with art cards and Bible study tools!
Saved by the Blood
The remembrance of Passover begins at sundown on April 19 this year. On the night that Jesus was betrayed, He celebrated the Passover with His disciples. He Himself became our Passover Lamb. The Passover card celebrates God’s deliverance for us through Yeshua’s blood. The card includes the artist’s notes and a celebration greeting on the inside. Here is some of the text included on the back of the card:
