Towards the end of the growing season I’m often asked, “Are you done with the garden?” I usually shake my head and mutter something about turnips and mustard. But that’s not all. The farm relies heavily on the fall garden.

We are still going, and growing, strong. The van and trailer are filled to the brim every Monday for the Nashville delivery. Here’s the list of what our customers received on November 22nd.

Several years ago, on a Sunday morning in Philadelphia, a father and his 8-year-old daughter were walking to Sunday School. But when they arrived, they discovered the door to the church building was shut with a notice that read, “Room for no more.”

Sadly, the father and little daughter turned around and walked home. On the way they met the preacher, who seeing the little girl crying, picked her up in his arms and carried her into the church building saying, “Someday, Hettie, we will have a church big enough for all the boys and girls, and no one will be turned away.”

Writing requires organizing my thoughts into a coherent form. An idea is brought forth in the first in the first paragraph, and then expounded on. I try to slip a bit of humor in, along with philosophy, science and local venacular. The last paragraph has to wrap it up somehow.

Dead Weight and Giveaways PDF Print E-mail

Believe it or not, there is dead weight even in the church. An unknown author has penned a poem which graphically describes this dead weight.

I’ve been a dead weight many years

Around the church’s neck;

I’ve let others carry me

And always pay the check.

I’ve had my name upon the rolls

For years and years gone by;

Life and Godliness: A DEVOTIONAL PDF Print E-mail

@font-face { font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }table.MsoNormalTable { font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; }

The Apostle Peter says that God has “given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness…” (II Peter 1:3). In other words, we have everything we need to live a life that pleases God. God has given to us all that we need to know about life and godliness.

What a timely passage for this mixed-up and ungodly nation!

The first thing to capture our attention here is that God is a giver. He is not a TAKER, but a GIVER. Some people are only takers. They are happy with us so long as we allow them to remain takers. Some children excel in the matter of taking from their parents, but are selfish pigmies in giving to them.
