    “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13
    There came a time in my middle 30s when the Lord was doing a new thing in my life.  
    He pressed it upon my heart to forgive my abusive-alcoholic father for the pain and suffering he caused when I was a child growing up.  

  • Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron?  Are there little scabs on the underside of the leaves of your orchid? Maybe you have noticed that your plants just look a little lack luster.  
    Well, we can blame some of the plant puniness on being a tropical houseplant indoors in Kentuckiana during the winter.
    Low levels of humidity and low levels of light trigger a response in plants that slows them down, causing them to shed foliage and leaving them in a standby phase until the environment turns more favorable.
