  • There are times we become confused and will not be able to figure out a way to solve our problems. Life is not always a smooth interstate and it’s good to remember that God is with us when we encounter unexpected roadblocks and detours.
    In these stressful situations, we can know that delays do not necessarily mean denial but could be an opportunity for us to stretch our faith and learn more about trusting God. There is a fascinating story found in Genesis chapter 22 about a man named Abraham and his wife Sarah.

  • Have you ever gotten blamed for something you haven’t done?  Most of us have experienced this and it is a dreadful feeling.  Well, there are a great many things we blame erroneously on one thing or another, and lichens are one of them.

  • It’s been hot and humid the last few weeks! I was hopeful that this summer was going to be idyllic…at least we got pop up rainstorms to keep things hydrated. These 90-degree days, however, are putting us on track for some serious heat and some of our vegetables will love it and some will not.  
    I know we can’t change the ambient air temperature on a 90 degree day but we can provide some shade for our plants on the hottest days of the summer with reasonable results.
