  • It’s been a while since I thought about skipping church because of the sermon topic, but last week I was tempted.
    At my church we’re currently going through a sermon series on “Love Thy Neighbor,” which in itself isn’t a skipping-church-worthy topic. I mean, who doesn’t agree that we should love our neighbors as we love ourselves?

  • Plant collectors have long appreciated orchids and African violets for their winter bloom cycle.  
    I have amassed a collection of both and they help me get through the winter with their colorful interest. But violets and orchids are not the only classes of plants that can deliver in the winter; think succulents.
