All facts about sunflowers :

Sunflower is the only flower with flower in its name!

“Helianthus” is the scientific name of Sunflower, Helia for Sun and Anthus for Flower.

Sunflowers are the symbol of faith, loyalty and adoration.

They follow the movement of the sun across the sky from east to west, and this process is known as heliotropism.

I’m sitting here thinking about NASA and how they are preparing a new place for human existence to live – Mars.

I must admit, I’m not that knowledgeable about the planet Mars and its atmosphere for living.  However, I will study and learn about Gods created planet Mars and ask Him many question as why the creation.

I have to commend our men and women at NASA operating as God’s image as like Him.  They are giving the world an illustration of possibilities that goes beyond natural impossibilities.  I’m impressed and intrigued!!

Can you imagine that we just might have another option to move to another planet and establish new residence?  If technology has expounded to the point that we are able to send mankind to a planet that has 26 hours in a day.  Then you know we are going to be able to communicate from Earth to Mars through the internet by satellite.  Kind of exciting, isn’t it?

I do have this question to our Father in heaven.  If God is the breath of life, and that life lives in mankind, mankind is being transported to the planet Mars.  Is it a possibility that we can transport our positive energy to a planet that is lacking the power of God, then develop a serene place of heavenly living?

You know God is full of wealth of knowledge that has not being unveiled to mankind, just yet, but maybe there is going to be unveiled knowledge revealed to mankind that will be obtain through this project of living on Mars.  You never know??

Our future is bright and I truly believe what the scripture in Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. (except by the revealing knowledge of the Holy Spirit that lives in Gods kids).

My question to you. Would you consider moving to Mars?  There are many that has already chosen to leave earth to live on Mars as their new residence.

Here is an updated article on Mars if you’re interested in reading about our future residential planet – Mars.

Matthew 10:40-42

 40 “He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. 41 He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.”

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

A pregnant teen goes on the road with her dreamer boy friend, who abandons her in a Wal-Mart store in Oklahoma. Left alone with virtually no money, she hides out in the store for 6 weeks until her baby is born. After the birth, she gets national recognition as giving birth to the “Wal-mart baby”. She makes friends with two local women (Stockard Channing as a religious, but promiscious woman & Ashley Judd as a woman with a pile of kids, who also seems to have considerable man problems until she marries the local exterminator). She also becomes friends with the Wal-mart photographer, who leads her to a career, and with a young man who runs the library and takes her of his alcoholic sister, who is the real librarian….
