Garden colors

Few things show the fantastic plurality of colors (think sea-green, pea-green, lime-green, etc.) and shapes, the range-less creative ability of God more than a garden. And – – – few things show the ability of God’s prime creature – man – more than a well – kept – garden.

Grow Up

The problem is not with youth or being young (at first they do not realize they are young and later know it but do not understand that youthfulness is worshipped in western “culture”). The problem is when carnal or at least unthinking, men/women see their youth fading and either refuse to grow up or are stupid enough to think they can be both adult and “youth.” Neither group accepts their attempts at dress, talk, hair, etc.

Judge not a man by his origins,

The banks and borders he called home,

Before he came to where you saw him

Before he from that place did roam.


It’s not our point of origination,

Not old country nor older creed

That decides the worth of earth’s traveler

Nor even present movements or deeds.


Which way is his nose pointed?

If he were (he’s far more) a hound

You’d know by the set of his head

The direction his heart is bound.  


Judge not a man by his home,

Judge by where he’s going,

Judge by exerted efforts,

Judge by his daily toiling.

Money is a “carrot.”

It’s an artificial carrot which we’ve been indoctrinated to accept. We’ve been trained to chase it, yes, and even worship it. It has become a god to many evangelicals and sadly even to some who profess to have a holy heart. Stop. Stop the worship. The God who supplied the needs of OT prophets and NT apostles has not died – He hasn’t even retired. 🙂
