The Newsboys new album In The Hands of God is expected out on May 5. To hear some samples of some of the songs go to the following website:
A lot of things have been going on here lately at home. Some I won't share here, but you may be interested to know that a wild cherry tree cracked on our property and eventually fell splitting apart a dogwood tree. We had a guy cut them up and remove them paying him $14o or 150 as he broke 3 chains sawing it. We also have learned we have a pecan tree which is exciting. I'm hoping it will produce well, even if we might not be up to harvesting all of them. Maybe we will get to have pecan pie with our own pecans! There are a number of irises blooming in our garden already some bearded and some not bearded. There is an Iris Festival this month. Next month there is a Rhododendron Festival in another place.
There are a lot of negative things going on in our country and the world, but God's Hand is still evident around us. I expect we will have many more reasons to feel our need to trust Him in the years to come.
The dogwood blossoms have been falling here, and now the green is showing more around us. It's like having the woods and the country mixed together here in the northeastern part of Tennessee. I still love the sights of California and having more stores close by, but I can also enjoy the beauty of God's creation here. For those coming to visit, I think you will enjoy it if you like nature... just be prepared for the accents and possibly hearing country music (but not in our house!).
