Just now they are in full bloom! Look how pretty and full the bloom are. This is the 3rd season we have enjoyed the blooms:
We hope to have blooms again next year.
All it takes is a little care.
The same seed planted in good soil will bear the same fruit anywhere in the world where there is warmth and moisture.
God’s people bear the same fruit in every land,
because it comes from the same seed.
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields
Joke of the Day
One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, "I'm not going."
"Why not?" she asked.
I'll give you two good reasons," he said. "(1), they don't like me, and (2), I don't like them."
His mother replied, "I'll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to church:
(1) You're 49 years old, and (2) you're the pastor!"
