We were walking in a historical neighborhood when I found the box above. I don't know what it was used for, except that it was battered, gray, and left out for the trash. It has cool metal handles on the two shorter sides.
It sat on the front porch from the day I put it in the car, a week before Thanksgiving, until last week. I painted it red and my neighbor stenciled it for me. Lauren is that kind of girl. I was bemoaning my poor stenciling skills the night before. When I came home from work, Lauren was stenciling it over on her porch.
The only thing is that I didn't put any rosemary in it. I use cilantro a lot more. How "un-Scarborough Fair" of me. Are You Going to Scarborough Fair? When I was a teenager, there was a popular newscaster on Channel 4, WNBC, named Chuck Scarborough. We used to sing a riff on that song, "Are you combing Chuck Scarborough's hair?"
He's still there doing the news. I interviewed him in high school. I can't imagine doing one job for so long. I think it must be 40 years.

Here are her two babies:
Oh that I had wings like a dove! Then I would fly away, and be at rest. Psalm 55:6

Is this where they live? No, they live here right now, in a deep puddle near my front yard.
John 10:10 says that Jesus came to bring the abundant life. God showers his unmerited favor, his grace upon our shoulders. He has big plans for us. Jabez prayed that God would enlarge his borders. We should pray for the same thing. Otherwise, we are like these ducks, sitting near a big puddle,
Which picture looks better?
