  • So if you follow my posts, you know two things for sure. 1) I am a Christian committed to interpreting the Word into Modern terms to make it more relevant to people, and 2) I love to garden. Flowers, Veggies, you name it. Check back a few posts and you will find a mixture of the heavenly and the terrestrial.

    I am currently working on the last two chapters of Galatians, trying hard not to make it too severe. Paul is gently but firmly chewing their butts out for letting the formalist Jews bully them. He's trying hard to say it with love, but in modern terms? Well, sort of like one of my granddaughters observed..."Why does everyone in this family have to be a smart ass?". It's a hard habit to break.

    As to the garden, I was thrilled this morning to discover my day lilies will soon emerge and brighten our days with their orange glow, and even more thrilled to find the beginnings of cherry tomatoes on one of the plants. Mmmmm. I can almost taste them now, and it is still even money as to how many of them actually make it into the house. In my opinion, God made these little items as the perfect snack food, and who am I to argue?

    Bright sunny day here in Peoria, son Rick is at the dining room table working on a couple of drawings (a very talented cartoon artist) and granddaughter Rabecca hard at work with an on-line art history paper. Sandra had a CT scan this morning and decided to take the day off, so she is relaxing. Tuna salad pitas tonight for dinner, will head to the kitchen in a couple of hours to chop onions, bell peppers (red, yellow and green), and a bit of celery to add to the mixture of mayonnaise, relish, hard boiled eggs, and albacore tuna to stuff into the pockets with a bit of lettuce.

    Observing the beauty of the day God has made and contemplating His Love.
