Therefore we should have the heart-when we see the vegetation is becoming stunted, not merely to make experiments on the fields alone, but to increase the wooded areas a little. Or if we notice that the plats are growing rampant, then we should set to work and make some clearings in the forest-take certain surfaces of wooded land away. What the woods do- not only for it’s immediate vicinity but far away and around it- what the woods do in this direction has to be done by quite other things in unwooded districts. This we should learn to understand.
One day your heart and my heart will beat for the last time and this will mark the end of our time on planet earth, but it will not be the end of us. The body is a temporary house for the spirit.
The word “Reverend” is used only one time in the King James Version of the Bible. “He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name” (Psalm 111:9). The word “reverend” refers to God in this passage.
Since we find no reference to The Reverend John or The Reverend Paul in the Bible, God’s Word, we are forced to conclude that this practice must have originated somewhere other than in the mind of God.

Poor Rudolph! For years he has been the lead deer- pulling his sleigh millions of miles- loaded with toys- thrilling the hearts of multiplied millions of children, but now he is in danger of being banned from school, less American boys and girls become corrupted by this loving fictitious character of our culture.
One of the best, and worst, feelings in life comes at that moment when we find out exactly just what we’ve been missing; when we come to grips with the fact that we once naively thought we had it all, and then came to understand that there was more, much more, out there, just waiting for us to discover it.
The impetus for our week comes from you, the people who eat our food, read the column, watch the show, or visit the farm. Money flows in and out of here, but doesn’t seem to be the reason for the work. We love what we do and would keep farming anyway, although on a much smaller scale. But the economy of the scale and the division of labor allow us maximum production efficiently, and your support makes this possible.
Perhaps more than any other time of the year, the holidays remind us of the importance of tradition; the significance of those time-honored customs that flood our minds with memories, our souls with comfort and our hearts with a sense of peace that is rarely found at the center of any other season.
