Today's Features

  • A couple of years ago I planted squash in my garden. The squash plant itself grew and majored into a large plant with nice deep greenery. The plants appeared to be healthy and ready to produce a great number of squash. Unfortunately, though the leaves seemed perfect and beautiful, the plants would not produce fruit. As a result, the plants existed for no purpose other than to set off an external appearance.

  • My wife and I have been able to visit some beautiful gardens. Butchart Gardens in British Columbia would probably be my favorite, but Bellingrath Gardens in Alabama would be a close second. Some of the English gardens are quite different and the Schonbrunn Palace gardens in Vienna are nice.

    Recently, I was preparing a message that dealt with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and was reading Warren Weirsbe Bible Commentary. Having been able to visit the garden in the 70s made my reading more meaningful. There was a statement made in Luke 21:37 that caught my attention.
