  • Last week I spoke at a women’s lunch thing at a local church.
    The woman who invited me told me that their theme was thankfulness.
    That was several months ago when the sky was blue, the humidity was low and I think someone brought in cake to work that day, so of course I said I’d love to talk about being thankful.
    After all, it’s easy to give thanks when all is well.
    And then in the weeks leading up to my talk, life just sort of fell apart. In many ways it feels like the gates of hell opened up and dumped on my family.

    I’m so glad Jesus chose Peter to be one of His disciples, because he’s like us--curious, bull-headed, reckless, impulsive, but sometimes weak.
    One of the best known scenes from Peter’s life happened when the disciples were in a boat, and Jesus came walking on the water. They thought he was a ghost, but Jesus immediately said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

  • I am in need of chips. Wood chips, that is.
    I grew up being warned about using fresh wood products as mulch or soil amendments because, in theory, as the wood broke down it would tie up valuable nitrogen, stealing it away from the plants. 
    More recent conclusions based on old and new field research - and practical experience - suggests otherwise. 
    I have found that wood chips make an excellent soil conditioner and weed suppressant (almost more critical this year).
