Twisted Tuesday – The Straight and Narrow Way — Biblical Beginnings

It’s finally here, beloved brethren, it’s Reformation Day! Is that an official holiday yet? It should be! Instead of candy everyone could hand out tulips. I’ll admit, the ecumenical parties have tainted this anniversary for me. It’s frustrating to see the very thing the Reformers faught against, and in some cases died for, being imbraced […]

Should a Christian Get a Tattoo?

The Disciple's Road

We are currently living in the age of the tattoo. A Harris 2015 online survey poll of 2,225 American adults found that 29% have tattoos. That was up from 21% just four years earlier. And of those who have a tattoo, 69% have two or more. I guess once you take the plunge and get one, you have no qualms about getting another one.

According to the poll, the demographics of tattooed people break down as follows: (I’ll provide a definition for each age group, but please understand that there isn’t always total agreement on when an age group begins and ends.) 

  • Millennials (born between 1980 and 2000): 47% have at least one tattoo, and 37% have at least two.
  • Generation Xers (born between 1965 and 1980): 36% have at least one tattoo, and 24% have at least two.

It really is amust have. And when making a whole lot of cards ,or what ever, the stamp stays in place and you can just stamp to your hearts content. (Now why didn’t I think of this )

This new stamp is from Penny Black. I won one of the blog hops and goodness it is hard to decide what to get when you NEED every thing Penny Black has. But after lookin and looking I settled on these two background stamps.

Save the lemon tree

It is finely here…cooler fall weather . Yes I  have had to turn on some heat and the dog looks like she would like to be in instead of out but not just yet Babe. Now Journey End Farm isn’t much of a farm since the farmer left but there is still the lemon tree. This poor tree must have a will to live because it has almost died several times. One year the cold did get it and a good bit of the tree really did die. Then for a couple of years there were no blooms and the bugs were really bad. But…this year there are BIG beautiful lemons and a lot of them. Couple of dozen or so. Here are two pictures taken after I managed to clean out around the tree and water it really well so I could close up the hoop house (green house). The hoop house has been and still is in need of a revamp which I feel is in the very near future. It hasn’t been in full production in several years and there are changes coming. The buckets are under heavy branches for support . That is how big and heavy the fruit is.

The second picture shows the bay tree in the background that is trying to grow out the top. I think I thought it would be a bush when I planted it years ago. This is one reason there are changes coming.What a mess my hoop house is in.

Thank you for all the new visitors. Please leave a comment so I know you were here. Just say” Hi”.  Until next time do have a grand weekend and remember  This is the Lords day…Rejoice!
