Green, green growing things

We have observed that most people cease learning by the age of forty. By that we mean they no longer actively pursue knowledge, understanding, and experience that will enhance their capacity to grow and contribute to others. Most simply rest on what they already know. But those who finish well maintain a positive learning attitude all their lives. Bobby Clinton, Finishing Well

Last weekend we attended a leadership retreat. I had the pleasure of decorating the tables for the opening dinner. I went with the gardening theme of “Sowing and Reaping”. The children’s boots on the table were new, unused, and small. I was happy to find great fabric as underlayment.



The rest of the retreat was held at Eagle Fern Camp, our old stomping grounds since childhood. These “green” pictures are from there.10-03-06-13-09-36H10-03-06-13-07-51H
