Illustrations from around the Kitchen Sink and a Contest

Update: The closest guess will win. We would really like you guys to guess. The contest will be open until someone guesses correctly or until the end of January.

Plants have a difficult life around our kitchen sink as seen in the photos below.

We have mixed views about the place and purpose of house plants.

How many months do you think we have had this plant (picture below)? We were given it after a gathering we attended. If you can guess what the gathering was about we'll be impressed.

We have enjoyed these flowers though they are on their way out. We have had them for several weeks. They do well in a cooler climate. How much? $1.

God has given us a large variety of beautiful flowers and plants. He uses this part of creation to make a point about the importance of His Word.

"The grass withers and the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever." Isaiah 40:8

Let us use the time He has given us to know Him through His precious Word. We were encouraged to do this multiple times in various ways at the Rise Up conference.

It is hard work, but there is blessing in it.

"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workmen that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth."
2 Timothy 2:15


P.S. Leave your guess as a comment. The first one who correctly answers will be the winner. A picture of the prize will be forthcoming.
