Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

The dandelion.

A beautiful sunburst of flowering color with a very deep tap root.
Despite being a common weed that home owners detest in their yards
this plant is very useful in several ways.
No one can deny its ability to survive and propagate itself far and wide.

"The happiness which brings enduring worth to life
is not the superficial happiness
that is dependent on circumstances.
It is the happiness and contentment that fills the soul
even in the midst of the most distressing circumstances
and the most bitter environment.
It is the kind of happiness that grins
when things go wrong and smiles through the tears.
The happiness for which our souls ache
is one undisturbed by success or failure,
one which will root deeply inside us
and give inward relaxation, peace, and contentment,
no matter what the surface problems may be.
That kind of happiness stands in need of no outward stimulus."
- Billy Graham
