    Very thought-provoking, and a beautiful picture! By chance are any of these pictures with corresponding quotes going to make it to the 2011 Lenspiration calendar??

    I was going to say the same thing Kathryn. This is a quote that makes people think, like me! The picture just shows the beauty of God’s Creation.
    Great shot James!

    Great idea, Kathryn! There is a lot packed into that little quote. And I think people would love a calendar with sayings like that for each month – I know I would! I also think it’s neat how you matched the picture with the quote, James: approaching the usual from a new perspective.

    Thoughts are like little plants. Some are very good, and to cultivate them is to anticipate wonderful things. Thoughts will bear fruit in our words and actions. Some are like weeds; once they start to bear fruit or seed it is very hard to get rid of them and they do a lot of severe damage. We all know that there are some thoughts that should never be put into words or actions; for if they do not die right there they will multiply death all over the place. The key is to know if a thought is good or bad when it is very tiny. And there are ways to know. Listen to experienced people. Listen to the Bible. As a gardener I can usually tell a good plant from a bad one from the start as it first appears above the soil. I’ve seen many plants grow to produce fruit and I know what fruit is good. My body is healthy. The moral health of a society reveals the goodness of the thoughts it cultivates in the minds of its citizens, especially its children. America has planted a lot of seeds over TV and radio. She should expect to reap of the same. Thought is preparation for action. Phil. 4:8, Ps. 119:97…

    Wow! How true!! I never thought of it that way before! I pray that through God’s grace I’ll have the courage to stand up for what’s right, even when it’s hard!

    Thank you for writing out your thoughts, Michael. It is neat to see your perspective as a gardener; much of what you say is so very visual. I’ll have to use some of your comment in another quote! 🙂

    Good question Kathryn. As for now, perhaps these quotes can be used on a 2012 calendar; believe it or not, other progressive arrangements are being made for 2011! I can’t wait to announce the details!
