Let us think of getting in stride with God. Oswald Chambers said, “Getting Into God’s Stride” -- The test of a man’s religious life and character is not what he does in the exceptional moments of life, but what he does in the ordinary times, when there is nothing tremendous or exciting on. The worth of a man is revealed in his attitude to ordinary things when he is not before the footlights (cf. John 1:36). It is a painful business to get through into the stride of God, it means getting your second wind spiritually. In learning to walk with God there is always the difficulty of getting into His stride; but when we have got into it, the only characteristic that manifests itself is the life of God. The individual man is lost sight of in his personal union with God, and the stride and the power of God alone are manifested. “HALLELUJAH.” HELLO MORENO VALLEY “Where Dreams Soar”

Readers if you would like a Butterfly Garden here’s what to do. Plant these plants in a special place in your yard and the butterflies are sure to come: Aster, Blazing Star, Butterfly bush, Butterfly Weed, Coreopsis, tickseed, Butter Daisy, Pincushion Flower, Purple coneflower, Yarrow or Ochillea, Salvia Red, Scarlet Sage, and Fire Cracker plant.

Give your plants a nitrogen boost by dissolving one packet of unflavored gelatin into a quart of water. Use this mixture once a month. I use a lot of Epsom salt it sure saves your plants from snails and slugs.
