Gardenia Bushes

On both sides of the front door of my house sit a gardenia bush. I am pleased to report that each is chock full of buds. All day long I've been checking the progess of flowers as they open. The fragrance is intoxicating. The white petals are silky smooth. The color scheme is dramatic. Simply elegant.

Sermon Meditation

Aside from taking good notes during the sermon on Titus, I spent some time diagramming Titus 2:11-13. Diagramming helps one understand the meaning of sentences. One learns to read for the purpose of reading Scripture and increasing in the knowledge of God. One learns to diagram for the purpose of improving one's reading skills.

Do you and your children know how to diagram sentences?
