The season is just  about over but the plot is close to being ready for a new year. After the discouraging help from my dog  and a lot digging on my part things do look better.

I knew there was block path there somwhere it was just covered with goodness knows what kind of weeds and over growth.  Most of the Crocosmia has been pulled and time will tell what will come back in the Spring.  Mexican Petunias are just to hard to get out. I am giving it a try . They are a pretty plant but my goodness…they take over and grow under and over anything in its way.


As for the Cyprus vine…well it is beautiful but it needs to be on an outside fence.

DSCN2169 The gifted Mothers Day is in the ground. Not sure it will come back but maybe.

14,0000-Strong Caravan Invasion Heading for America

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

As the number of migrants grow exponentially, many of us know that this is no ordinary influx of illegal immigrants making their way into America.  Our attentions were briefly averted by the so-called “bomber” which we now see was a false flag.

But now President Trump is faced with the most dangerous potential attack on America since 9/11.

Who are these people?  How many are members of gangs like MS13?  How many are members of ISIS or Hezbollah or Hamas? Yes, some truly are escaping poverty and crime – but how many are they?

This is America.  This is our nation and home.  We have always been a nation of laws. The Left use this to accuse us of lacking in compassion.

A boat capsizes and frantic people are thrashing about – trying to stay alive. There is a family, a mother and father and four children.  The father sees…

Soros Express: ‘Refugees’ Mostly Military Age Men

Letter to An Aspiring Christian Apologist | J Warner Wallace

Reasoned Cases for Christ


I don’t have the experience, knowledge or broad understanding that J Warner Wallace possesses but I can recognize sound biblical advice when I see it. Every Christian should be a Christian Case Maker, regardless of how unprepared we may think we may be. It’s much like learning to ride a bike, you’ll make mistakes but after due time and some dedicated effort and lots of Bible study and heart felt prayer, you can make a difference, both to others and also to yourself.

I was encouraged by your note and your desire to become a Christian apologist. I must confess that I hate that word, “apologist” and wish we would decide, as a…

Review: A Tale of Two Sons by John F. MacArthur Jr.

The Domain for Truth

I’m posting this review after my discussion with Lee Duigon in his post ‘Behold the Power’ (2016) in which we were talking about John MacArthur’s insight into the Parables in the Gospels.  As a result of that discussion I was looking for my review of MacArthur’s book A Tale of Two Sons and realized that though I read the book in 2011 I didn’t post it here before!  So here it is, with an updated and expanded review!

John MacArthur. A Tale of Two Sons by John F. MacArthur Jr..  Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishing Company, April 1st 2008.  221 pp.
