    Freshness In the Garden

    How awesome is our God, who created the heavens and the earth. The earth is what I want to talk about. The good soil that we can plant a seed in and just watch it come out of the soil and grow into a beautiful something that we can eat. WOW! I love the dirt and I love the smell...
