One small tomato plant produced an abundant crop.

Pastor Louise wrote:
"The more I shared with others, the more that this plant seemed to produce."

"How like God's love was this abundance.  The more we share of God's love and blessings the more God gives us to share."

A pastor, known for his lengthy sermons, noticed a man get up and leave during the middle of his message. The man returned just before the conclusion of the service. Afterward the pastor asked the man where he had gone.

"I went to get a haircut," was the reply.

"But," said the pastor, "why didn't you do that before the service?"

"Because," the gentleman said, "I didn't need one then."
