How Poetic

Neil Armstrong will be buried a day of the full moon.
A full moon is the exact time, where the moon goes from waxing to waning.
The moon will be 100% illuminated.
Look close for his foot prints.

New Creature

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away;
 behold, all things are become new".

Lord, cleanse my soul as the beautiful snow, and help me resist temptations.

Did You Know (and where some of it goes SURPRISED me.)

That we have Abilities Unlimited? The operation not only will allow residents in several cities to
continue curbside recycling, but it will provide JOBS for people with developmental disabilities
 in our community.
I didn't  know this  but Abilities Unlimited has a long history of recycling .
starting with clothing that is donated and sold in thrift stores. Even flawed clothes, shoes and purses that workers
remove from the supply chain do not end up in trash. Instead, they are baled and sent overseas to countries such as China and Russia.
Americans won't buy them, but they will.
So recycling is a good thing.

One Of Those

" And let us not be weary in well doing : for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
Galatians 6:9

Thank you, God, for people who help with no thought of recognition or reward. Help me to be one of those people.

Frank Needed To Make A Statement

Funny story about this Lardo, his son sent a   bunch of it to him. You ask what is Lardo?
 At one time it was
 treated as the poor man's
food in Italy, and it was widely disdained. No more Lordo is now considered a delicacy by many Italians
The other name is Salumi Not Salame..
Boy! that Frank is been doing some fine dining in Houston Texas.

A Happy Note In The Garden

I got this Zinnia in the spring, it didn't make it. When it died I saved one of the blooms.
After I lost all of my other zinnias to a mold fungus and the bloom dried this is what is now growing.
