Mohammed: You really understand the true gifts in life that are precious. We have been endowed with so many wonderful things, especially nature,and the miracle of new life each spring. I was saying this as I saw the new green shoots coming up in my flower beds. I am a gardener with all kinds of roses, flowering bushes, lillies, foxglove, echinacea and climatis trellises. I always tell people, God lives in my back yard. Horticulture is my hobby and my passion.

I love to take care and nuture my beautiful plants. In addition they bless me with hummingbirds, butterflies, and many different kinds of bees for my local bee-keeper who sells the honey. (From flower to hive ,to consumer. God will take you where you didn't realize you needed to go. Out of the city, the hustle and bustle of smog and cars, noise, crime, and fighting.

I watch National Geographic, Discovery, History, and Animal Kingdom too. The Universe is certainly vast, and incredible. Yes the eggs are another incredible creation by God, as well as the vast creations of animals, their sizes and their habitation on this earth. I could elaborate on this all day. We have found our nitch. I think you are one of a Kind, because most men do not appreciate nature or flowers, I guess this is more for women, although my husband really likes to help me, and prepare our flowerbeds, and gardens. He loves hard physical work, and the results are so very rewarding. I am so glad we can appreciate the God given things more than money or prestige.

Amen and Amen and Praise to God, Deborah
