To my Sisters

 To be raised by parents who love one another is to be appreciated.

 Always a Ham in front of the camera
 While we miss our Dad, 
the Bible leaves us a happy hope.

"Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those, who have paid attention will live....
Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..."
 John 5:25, 28

God's original purpose for the earth is brought out in Genesis:
"And God went on to create the man in his image, in God's image he created him; male and female he created them. Further, God blessed them, and God said to them; 'Be fruitful, and become many, fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and flying creatures of the heavens and  every living creature that is moving on the earth.'"
 ...After that God saw everything he had made, and look! It was very good" 
 -Genesis 1 ;27, 28, 31
What a grand assignment Adam and Eve were given, to extend the Garden of Eden, along with their perfect offspring, until the whole earth was a paradise, with all unitedly serving their Grand Creator! 

God's word clearly tells us why the conditions on earth are not according to God's will and purpose.
And by what means God will use to bring everything back in harmony with that purpose. 

"That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned-, ...
So, then, as through one trespass the result to men of all sorts was condemnation, so too through one act of justification the result to men of all sorts is their being declared righteous for life. For just as through the disobedience of the one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one person many will be made righteous....
To what end? So that just as sin ruled as king with death, so also undeserved kindness might rule as king through righteousness leading to everlasting life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
 -Romans 5:12, 18, 19, 21

By means of the sacrifice of Christ Jesus we have hope for everlasting life. By means of a global teaching work, God's Kingdom is already uniting a great crowd of people from all nations. Millions are becoming obedient subjects of Jesus. Yes, God's Kingdom will protect them when this wicked system is destroyed. This Kingdom will accomplish God's original purpose for mankind. The earth will become new, a global paradise. And we will welcome back all those who have died. I am looking forward to the fulfillment of this promise:
"...Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
-Revelation 21:3, 4

Garden in Spring

Planted some corn at the end of March.
 Since I am home more I thought I would give gardening a try.
I prepared the ground with old dried horse manure, a little sand. 
 Dillion brought me a trailer full of mushroom compost!
Just added some water and seeds, look! 
Corn, squash, beans, and sunflowers.
I do not plan on having the perfect manicured garden. 
I am a messy gardener,
I love wild flowers, so all native (weeds) surround my garden.
The ladybugs are attracted to the weeds. 

I have a pomegranate tree. 

 If you look closely at its blossoms you will see it is full of bees!

 I am soo happy to see these little pollinaters!
Where did they all come from?

 We have this old box down the hill by the shed.
They have made themselves right at home.
And they are quite friendly, not mean at all.
 Do you know what this next plant is?
Desy brought by a bunch of planting soil. 
 This beautiful fern like plant popped up.
 Look closely

What makes Desy happy?

Her friends call her Kai, they have been dating for some time now. 
She is a keeper!
