Today’s Scriptures: Joshua 1:8 – “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.  For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Hebrews 4:12 – “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” I have a friend who is truly a kindred spirit.  Her name is Sis.

One of the things I desired most was a beautiful, green, weed-free lawn.  The bane of my horticultural existence was that particularly resistant, rebellious weed called crabgrass!  You could pull them up all day, but their seeds would blow in…
