Beautiful Welcome; Beautiful Words

Last night we added something to our front porch. It really makes such a lovely difference! While Brian was putting it up, I took a couple pictures of the flowers ... here's a close-up of a pretty purple flower (I don't know what it's called) ...

And here are my herbs ... they really are thriving, and they're being used frequently!
And here is our latest addition to our porch. This lovely sign was a gift from our sweet friends J&J. We didn't hang it right away because at the time we received it, Brian was having a few doubts about our house, and we didn't want to hang it and leave it behind (it's a permanent hanging system). Anyway, we're not going anywhere, so Brian pulled it out of the cabinet last night and decided we should hang it. Doesn't it look perfect?

This evening, Allen impressed us with his skills, once again. Each night, I've been reciting the fruitage of the spirit (Galations 5:22, 23, New World Translation) to Allen each night before I sing to him. So, I asked him if he could tell us what they were ... check it out!!

Wow, Allen really has the fruits of the spirit down! Way to go Allen!! So, happy the sign was a nice addition to your home. And, WOW, your plants are really thriving.

Yeah Allen! That's wonderful. I was just thinking I needed to record Henry reciting some of his scriptures so perhaps you've inspired me.

He's not just a monkey...he's a spiritual monkey!

Good job, Allen!
