  • What does it mean, what will it take, to love without exception?

    I wasn’t there. I didn’t see for myself, experience for myself, the wonder of Jack Jezreel’s prophetic call for the parishioners of St. Brendan Church and the people of Brunswick County.
    I feel a bit like Paul, the letter writer of the Christian Scriptures. He also was not there in the physical company of Jesus of Nazareth.

  • Make a living wreath for a holiday centerpiece

    When I first heard the term “living wreath,” I didn’t quite understand what that meant until I had an opportunity to see one. Of all the container gardens one can choose from, the succulent wreaths are among the most beautiful. It may take a little work to create one of these, but when you finish, you will have a living work of art.
