Work on your day off? It was time to spray and time to fertilize today. The wind was calm so my husband spent the morning spraying the pecan trees. This afternoon we fertilized the new trees. Because the new trees are so small we have to fertilize them by hand. The bigger trees can be fertilized with the spreader on a smaller tractor. It was hot today but by afternoon a nice breeze was blowing making the outside work bearable."And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it." Genesis 2:15. The word "dress" in Hebrew means to "work, toil". The "Tina"version to that means, God meant for folks to work! As bad as I hate it, the word "retirement" is not mentioned in the Bible. So from the beginning, God meant for people to work. I am thankful for what God has given me to work and the ability and knowledge to accomplish it.

Our Pastor has always said that for God there is no retirement. He has always prayed that he will preach to the very day he dies.
