Sabbath Leaves

Our Beautiful World:
I think the way figs grow on the stem of the tree so interesting. The leaves are so distinctive and striking. I ate my first fresh fig this week. It was beautiful. I don't know how much I like them but I do like fresh figs better that preserved figs. My friend Katherine lives in a place called Fig Tree House. She says there is a mighty fig in the back garden.
0.11 acres (less the house and driveway and the enormous shade of the Maple tree) with which to grow food for my family. For quite a while I have been feeling deprived because there wasn't room for a garden and now that I have learned to be more creative, I feel abundantly blessed. Many people have no earth at all, mine just requires ingenuity and hard work.
To drive out contention. A sister in our ward does "not allow contention in" her home. We are all stunned and flabbergasted at this but she says it really is possible. we must find a way to reach this utopia.
