If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

We do too! I love watermelons and I am always looking for ways to preserve and have extra things for winter. I love freezing and canning our crops during the summer. If I can take what we have during the summer and can or freeze it for winter I feel better about what we are eating.

If you have any ideas Please share! We all need to stay healthy!

I borrowed this from the 'NATURAL HEALTH USING HERBS,SUPPLEMENTS &
VITAMINS TEAM' with premission from .EJHEINRICH1 Team Leader

Info I have collected about Watermelon

Watermelons are an excellent source of several vitamins: vitamin A, which helps maintain eye health and is an antioxidant; vitamin C, which helps strengthen immunity, heal wounds, prevent cell damage, promote healthy teeth and gums; and vitamin B6, which helps brain function and helps convert protein to energy.

Tomatoes have been highly touted as a great source for lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps fight heart disease and several types of cancer — prostate cancer in particular. Watermelon, however, has the highest concentrations of lycopene of any fresh fruit or vegetable.

If your little ones don’t dig into their swiss chard, lima beans or spinach — all great sources of potassium — consider offering them a serving of watermelon instead. It is a great source of potassium, which helps muscle and nerve function, helps maintain the body’s proper electrolyte and acid-base balance, and helps lower the risk of high blood pressure.

Watermelon also contains the amino acids citrulline and arginine, which can help maintain arteries, blood flow and overall cardiovascular function.

Chomp on the seeds they are loaded with nutrients for the prostrate as well as the kidneys and bladder


Toasted Watermelon Seeds

Don't toss the seeds! When toasted with a little oil and sprinkled with salt they become an unexpectedly tasty snack.


Total Time: 15 min
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Oven Temp: 350

1 cup(s) Raw Watermelon Seeds, rinsed and dried
Olive Oil
Sea Salt

Directions
Toss watermelon seeds in a little olive oil and sea salt. Roast on a baking sheet in a 325-degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
