    Martin Luther, the great protestant reformer, struggled for a long time to see it as “good news.” When he was a young man near the age of 21, he was caught in a thunderstorm in which a bolt of lightning hit the ground near him.
    Fearing for his life, he cried out to a saint and vowed to become a monk and follow the Lord if his life was spared.

    Patience is a virtue when it comes to daffodils.  
    Often the first color to appear in early spring, their beauty is long awaited.
    Then we have to wait another two months before we can remove the dulling green foliage.
