  • 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.

  • When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs.
    As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such.
    With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.
    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.
    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.

  • When it comes to bulbs we don’t always meet with consistent success. And, before you blame the chipmunks, the girl who mows the grass or the bulb company for their lack-luster performance, consider some of the other factors that influence how well flowering bulbs flower.  
    Sunlight; crowded bulbs; pre-mature removal of foliage the previous season; or a winter rest period that wasn’t cold enough or long enough may play a role in poor performance.
