  • Cold temperatures, snow and muddy walkways may be in our future for winter this year, but I have a plant that will bring color and liven up the dreariest of winter days—the amaryllis.

    Amaryllis is a member of the lily family, and is available in a range of colors, including pink, white, red, orange and variegated.

    This plant grows from a large bulb, making it well suited for blooming during the colder months of the year.

  • Luke 2:1-7 says, “And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.

    “Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child.
