You probably already know that fresh, home-grown tomatoes are good for you, but I didn’t know how very good! The latest news is that a research team from the University of Eastern Finland, reports that eating tomatoes is associated with a 50% lower risk of stroke, due in large part to high concentrations of the potent antioxidant, lycopene.
Have you ever felt you were entering another season in your life? In my heart I just knew I shouldn’t start my own seedlings or have the usual large garden this year even though I love doing it. So tomato plants from Terry, some peppers, cabbages, onions, garlic, my perennial herbs and mints, plus a few other things ( I’m still looking for a stevia plant) , and we will have a much smaller garden!
Abigail Adams and granddaughter Susanna watch as a servant hangs laundry in the East Room– by Gordon Phillips
Did you know that Abigail Adams used the unfinished East Room of the White House to hang her husband’s clothes? As President, she felt his laundry shouldn’t be exposed for everyone to see. This showed a deep respect for her husband and a lot about her discerning character. She once said of her spouse, “When he is wounded, I bleed.” What love, what affection, what passion!
Orioles eat fruit and can be attracted with orange halves placed on platform feeders, a deck railing, or nailed to a tree. While it is too late now to put out oranges to attract orioles just returning from their winter range (around April 1st in the South and April 15th to May 1st in the northern half of the country), it is never too late to draw the ones already here and to learn what you can do for next year!
Did you ever think that speaking to someone about Jesus was something you couldn’t do or that you had to say just the right words? Well, don’t you believe it! If you have compassion for those who don’t know the Lord (as Jesus did in His day) but are hesitant or afraid, I want to share this story with you to give you the courage and boldness of a lioness!
Well, I think the title should really read, “The Gift That Keeps On Giving”! No thing on this earth lasts forever, right?
This last weekend we were privileged to be involved in the wedding of a dear friend who we love very much. For her bridesmaid’s shower, my daughter wanted the gift to appeal to her practical nature as well as her love of baking aromatic breads and pastries. We felt a large bottle of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract was in order.
After writing Part 1 of what will become a fairly long series (eventually), I realized I better do it in bite-sized pieces because I don’t want to wear us all out, AND because there are so many wonderful books to share! I hope you find this helpful and as much fun as I do
In our post-modern culture, we have become addicted to ease and entertainment; this has really stripped boys of a lot of defining elements they used to go through on their way to becoming men. It has fostered generations of educated yet often unproductive and weak-willed men.
For 38 years, I have been a wife to my husband and a teacher of our children in the home. Now a new season has come, and with the blessing of my husband, I write this blog as an encouragement to myself and others. (Titus 2: 3-5) How important is this role of speaking into the lives of younger women! The habits of the home in one generation become the morals of society in the next. As William Ross Wallace said: “The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.”
