Prayer for today (6/23/17)

Heavenly Father, I acknowledge I have sinned and come short of your glory. Thank you for demonstrating your love to me that I was still a sinner, Christ died for me. Your word says that Jesus is the only door to the Father and I must come to you through him alone. I repent of all my sins. Please forgive me. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Thank you, Lord, for another beautiful day. Thank you for food, shelter, water, clothes and a loving family. Thank you for being there when we call upon your holy name and being God all by yourself. “Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips” Psalms 141:3.

On Gardening: Pineapple lily easy to grow, exotically beautiful

Once you start growing the pineapple lily, you'll wonder why you haven't been growing it for years. Sparkling Burgundy was the first one to intrigue me at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens as it was thriving in what I might normally consider extreme conditions. It was and still is growing in full sun, practically no attention from horticulture staff and zero irrigation. Yet, every year it is there blooming with a Shoal Creek vitex, fire bush, and torch lily in a unique combination.
