  • Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fowl swoop.
    We rake and pile and they jump.  
    I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy: Adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer.  
    At the farm, raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (with reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.

  • Christian author and speaker Paul Tripp tells the story of his 3-year-old son Darnay who was wandering around their backyard one day oblivious to the fact that his older brother was playing baseball by hitting stones with a rake handle.
    Eventually, the older brother took a swing and accidently struck little Darnay squarely on his forehead. His sister, also in the backyard, began to scream at the sight of poor Darnay on the ground bleeding.
    Paul went out and started to mop away the blood to determine how bad it was. The older brother was pleading his innocence.

  • Here’s a question for you: When is sin a good thing?
    Recently, I heard a preacher say, “The greatest gift that God gives to the people he loves is their sin -- when they know it.”
    I’ll let you digest that for a minute.
    The preacher did NOT say that God thinks sin is good. Sin is what separates the creature from the Creator, the very thing that caused Jesus to die for us.
    No, the preacher said that our sin, when we know it and own it and hate it, is a gift, a gift from God.
    How can that be?

  • There are certain trees that consistently remain my favorites.  When I think about their common characteristics, one thing stands out: the bark.  Interesting bark is always there, whether the tree is leafing out, blooming, or showing dramatic fall color.  Bark remains constant whether the tree is good, bad, pretty or ugly.
