  • For the most part I’m not a fan of the “Messages from God” billboards (“What part of ‘Thou Shalt Not’ didn’t you understand?” “Keep using my name in vain and I’ll make rush hour longer,” “You think it’s hot here?”)

  • It looks like we are in a cool weather pattern, which got me thinking about some of my orchids and holiday cacti.  When attempting to grow tropical plants we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat, which is difficult inside our homes. We can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.  
    Move some of your orchids, holiday cacti and clivia outdoors for the remainder of the season because we can initiate bud set through managing day length and nighttime temperatures.

  • Recently, the United States has been bombarded with tragedy after tragedy — hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, etc. Often many will blame God declaring it was “an act of God,” yet, this is more of rationalizing the problem of worldly sin and the consequences thereof.
    The statement is not all untrue, for God is sovereign and allows the storms of life to occur for a reason. In Houston during the recovery and assistance operation, many came together and helped those who were devastated by the Hurricane Harvey.
