The wisdom that is from above is first
pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy
to be intreated, full of mercy and good
fruits, without partiality, and without
James 3:17
Teaching wisdom
Is not easy anywhere
Especially to bears
That live upstairs
In the room above
Who will not look
At a story book
Nor do they care.
But God's kingdom
Is built on love
With lessons earned
In fruits of the spirit
By mercy learned..
Poetry by me AJP

The title of the book is:
"Book of Garden Wisdom" by the Editors of The Old Farmer's Almanac. I bought it at a library book sale. This might be late in the game but I decided to exchange my previous Nostalgia entry for this one which I think fits the theme better...Teddy bears are definitely beloved toys of childhood days and I still love them.

    These are getting more and more artistic, Andrea, so I will have to defer to the others (who know what you are doing and have done). Let me say that your message is timely and on point, and that the composition and all of its elements are lovely. You could have easily modeled for the nostalgic dust jacket on the book.

    Thank you everyone...That would be nice if the bear took over the gardening but I have to teach myself first:) My husband has the green thumb and he does a good job of it when the weather co-operates.
