"Simple nonfiction text and full-color photographs present planting seeds in spring"--
In Genesis 1, God spoke of making (hu)man in his image and after his likeness. In Genesis 2, God formed (hu)man off the dust of the ground and breathe into his nostrils the breath of life. Just as in the beginning, God spoke his word and it became to pass. But when it came to the earth, God spoke that it would bring forth fruit from whatever was planted in it, and whatever grew from what was planted, the seed of it was in the fruit of what would grow. God planted his word and his Spirit in us from the very beginning. But another seed was planted—the seed of disobedience. So now we have to choose what words we will receive to grow in us to produce whatever type of fruit, for the seed is in that fruit. So in receiving the Word of God as planting seeds, you are now the by-product of the first fruits. His seed is within to produce after his kind.

Letters from God Witnessing Humanity in New Definition Teachings provided to adapt and evolve as we enter new cycles of awareness. Planting Seeds on Concrete is a collection of rich, complex narratives with God; to understand who we are and to know 'Him' in the modern definition. He asks for something, in return; have an open mind, have faith and for the faithful to know the difference. The following was given to help explain the messages: "This is not a "MY GOD" or "YOUR GOD" book. The words are GOD's and to know, when you hear HIM. Words that provoke fear or doom, are the words of men; translations distilled in the mindset of their heart, not the pure words, from particular moments of time. These letters are the seeds of, and for ALL time, ALL MINDS and SOULS. My purpose is twofold: 1) Prevent destruction that man will succeed, if, man remains focused on greed to take or compromise from the natural resources of MY EARTH, I gave as a gift for the World. 2) For My children. I LOVE ALL of MY CREATIONS and have provided My wisdom as a gesture of love, for you to remember Me, as when you are in the spiritual and introduce to you My true definition, when you are in physical form. Find My words to cleanse the soul from; pain or greed to overpower others, grief given or received and love with conditions, when there are not. Remove your masks of illusion to hide intensions of your truer nature. When All masks are freed, the heart and voice align and you will know Me. Let me teach you how." -God Discover the magic each and every life offers.
