earnestine aint much of a looker but AT LEAST does not have chin hair....yet.
lionel needs a shave.
I LOVE VBS~~~ butter and crunch came home with these wonderful cans with nylon stockings full of seed and faces painted on them with the parable of the sower and the seed from the Bible. I LOVE PRACTICAL APPLICATION! i "soaked the heads and then filled the cans "as per directions" and they began to FLOURISH, i tell you, FLOURISH! ok, i just threw up in my mouth a little as i looked over at them just then something about the regular chia pets have always grossed me out, but these have turned out to look like baked potato's...THAT ARE GROWING GREEN HAIR! and to make matters more interesting [unlike the chias] they grow hair on their FACES! Y'all, i am SO SORRY, I LOVE your VBS!!!! but these are EEEEEEWWWWWWWW!!!!! but, something about them is fascinating and i wake up each morning to see where a new "sprout" has popped up. i gagged a little when the chin hair started on "lionel". "earnestine has maintained hair just on her head as any lady would hope. I will never forget the parable now. thank you girls for the practical ap! LOVE YOU!!
Mark 4 (New International Version)
The Parable of the Sower
1Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water's edge. 2He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: 3"Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. 8Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times."
9Then Jesus said, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
10When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. 11He told them, "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables 12so that,
" 'they may be ever seeing but never perceiving,
and ever hearing but never understanding;
otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'[a]"
13Then Jesus said to them, "Don't you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? 14The farmer sows the word. 15Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. 16Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. 17But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 18Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. 20Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown."
