5 male ducks were having a meeting, I thought. First, they gathered in circle, and then 1 moved into center. Not to disturb them, I went around to gather their feathers and played with them. When I came back, I found the one in center stood on dock rail talking to them. I wished to know what they were talking about. Hey! MYOB!
I might die next second! (From Francis Chan's "Crazy Love-Overwhelmed by a relentless God"). So might be everybody! Am I afraid or worry? No. Beyond the sunset, there is a sweet home waiting for me. The Bible assured me in Revelation 21:4: "He (The Lord Jesus) will wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor pain. All of that has gone forever." I like "Beyond The Sunset" song and the home it described. I post it here.
Beyond the Sunset Words by Virgil P. Brock (1887-1978)
Beyond the sunset, O blissful morning, When with our Savior heav'n is begun; Earth's toiling ended, O glorious dawning, Beyond the sunset when day is done. Beyond the sunset, no clouds will gather, No storms will threaten, no fears annoy; O day of gladness, O day unending, Beyond the sunset eternal joy! Beyond the sunset, a hand will guide me To God the Father whom I adore; His glorious presence, His words of welcome, Will be my portion on that fair shore. Beyond the sunset, O glad reunion, With our dear loved ones who've gone before; In that fair homeland we'll know no parting, Beyond the sunset forever more!
I saw the original picture at Pastor Julio Fonseca's IDA Gospel Blog. I just added "Hopscotch and 跳房子" to it. It reminded me that I played this game when I was in elementary school, the fun (at that time no concret driveway or asphalt parking lot, mostly played on flat dirt ground), and about those playmates. My grandchildren will be able to play this game soon. To refresh my memory, I researched online and found that children verywhere around the world play this game. There are variations about the drawings and rules.
← I found this Ganoderma Lucidum mushroom under an old oak tree. Online I found these ↓ Lucidum pictures and herb supplements. Asian herb doctors believe that Lucidum is a known herb that does magic cure.
I do not swear (except in Court) and do not like to swear in here. What I say next is true, nothing but true. I took picture of this stem broken upside down mushroom because of its texture. After I downloaded it to my computer, I found a figure in it. I didn't do any photowork on it (left). I don't know why and how my camera captured this one. The only reason I can think of is: I must have deleted some pictures from my camera, and the camera played a trick. But, why this figure not other scene? Whatever, I am assured that God is with me all the time.
Subject: Lily`s operation successful 手術成功多謝代禱
From: Daniel Hung
Date: Fri, Aug 20, 2010
Thank you very much for your precious prayer for Lily`s operation. The diagnosis was unspecified genital prolapse. Lily discovered it 4 years ago, but she just unwisely ignored it. On Aug. 17 Lily was hospitalized, on Aug. 18 her doctor, without cutting open her lower abdomen, using a modern medical technique, cut out her drooping uterus successfully. She came home today, Aug.20, carrying a closed urinary drainage bag, which will be taken off when she returns to the hospital clinic to see her doctor on Aug. 23. She has no pain and can eat as usual. Thank you again for your prayer support. Thank God for His healing grace.
I have gone through 49 times of radiation therapy and 10 times of chemotherapy. Because of Lily`s operation I have postponed my chemotherapy until September 7. My oncologist doctor says I`ll have to receive two more times of chemotherapy, hoping the 2 cm large tumor in my lung will disappear then, as the tumor in my liver did; if not, there will be more chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Please continue to pray for me, many thanks.
May the Covenant-keeping Gracious Lord bless you, your family and your church.
Gratefully yours in Christ, Daniel M. Hung

We try to compost as much as we can. ←This is our 2compost heaps. 這是茶翁家園的二處堆肥場。
↓These are other composters' compost piles. 看看別人家的堆肥堆。
*Do not compost animal waste, meats, oils, diseased plants or plants treated with weed killers. *Healthy compost smells pleasantly earthy - turn it more often and add more dry brown matter if yours smells funky.
