What are you planting this year?
What are you cultivating in your heart and mind;
and in the hearts and minds of your children?
“Keep clear of personalities in conversation.
Talk of things, objects, thoughts.
The smallest minds occupy themselves with persons.
Do not needlessly report ill of others.
As far as possible, dwell on the good side of human beings.
There are family boards where a constant process of depreciating,
assigning motives, and cutting up character, goes forward.
They are not pleasant places.
One who is healthy does not wish to dine at a dissecting table.
There is evil enough in man, God knows.
But it is not the mission of every young man and woman to detail and report it all.
Keep the atmosphere as pure as possible,
and fragrant with gentleness and charity.”
– John Hall, Pastor (1829-1898)
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ,
set your hearts on things above,
where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
“A house is no home unless it contain food and fire
for the mind as well as for the body.”
– Margaret Fulle
May we sow seeds of heirloom quality.
[An heirloom seed is seed from a plant
that has been passed from one generation to another,
carefully grown and saved
because it is considered valuable.]
May we grow strong and sure,
seeing a heritage of fine harvests.
