Winter Window Sill Gardening

If you live in an area of our world where winter’s cold makes you weary, then chase your winter blahs away with a bit of windowsill gardening. Even if your world is warm in winter, you may not have outdoor growing space. So, if you have never grown herbs or other edibles indoors why not give it a try! There is nothing like having them fresh and at your disposal without having to visit a grocery store. It takes a sunny south-facing window and a little planning.

Many herbs can successfully be grown indoors. Some favorites you may want to try are curly parsley, Italian (or flat) parsley, onion chives, English mint, spicy globe basil, sage, Greek oregano and lemon thyme. Of course, there are plenty of other varieties but these seem to be well suited for indoor growing. If you choose to start them from seed, plan on 8-12 weeks (depending on the herb) before you start clipping the l Continue reading “Winter Window Sill Gardening”

Happy New Year

If you are reading this, just imagine you have made it to ’06. Congratulations!

Now what?

Many of us in ’05 have seen family and friends depart this world and make their journey home. Jesus was their life and theme and we can only imagine their experiences in their brand new home.

We have seen and experience the joy of weddings as couples mark the beginning of life together. We have also seen new birth in families bringing much joy.

Many have seen or experience loss of home or damages to homes from hurricanes and other natural disasters both at home and abroad.

Many have faced sickness. Sometimes even redefining life and its meaning.

There have been so many stories and much sorrow as well as joy. King Solomon said it all.

Ecclesiastes
Chapter 3

There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens.

A time to be born, Continue reading “Happy New Year”

Chicken farming

Questions from Sara to Wendy

Q’s
How did you learn how to buy and raise chickens? Do you have a rooster (s)?
Where do the chicks live?
What do they eat?
Do you also kill them for dinner?
Do you have help?
What color are the eggs?

Wendy’s answers!

A. We bought our chickens in the spring of 2005. I thought it would be a good project for my boys, ages seven and five. I think it’s important that my children understand how their grandparents and great grandparents had to live. My grandparents taught me so much about life. I built a big coop with a chicken house built onto it. My boys had an awesome time building the chicken coop. Needles even came and helped a day or two. That was awesome because I didn’t need a ladder.:) Our chickens were about two days old when we bought them from Southern States. It was still a little cold outside so I keep them in a big box and I Continue reading “Chicken farming”

My Testimony-Pharm D

Q. From Sara…Heather, when did you realize your mission on earth was to be a pharmacist?
A. I hadn’t even considered pharmacy until my senior year in high school. I had gone from nurse anesthesia, to nuclear medicine technology, to a medical doctor. (Obviously, I was interested in the medical field.) My mom graduated from the school I attend now and since I hadn’t really decided on any college or any specific field, for that matter, I decided to check it out–despite the fact I didn’t want to leave Texas. Then I ran across pharmacy (that is the flagship program here at ULM) and thought, I think I would really enjoy that. I have always enjoyed studying, and pharmacy is definitely a field I will have to continuously study in. So I filled out my application and sent it in. I began praying that God would show me if this was really what He wanted me to do. My family and I drove to ULM one Continue reading “My Testimony-Pharm D”
