Kev’s Daily Take On 01/29/2023

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Celebrate You with…

FREETHINKERS DAY expresses a need to think outside the box.  Those who do can shape society for the better, make a positive impact on the world and effect a big change – like Thomas Paine.  Today is this freethinker’s birthday.  He espoused universal human rights, an end to slavery and was a major influencer on the idea of independence from England. 

Education and Information

Maybe puzzle with your friends so you can swap stories and seeds.  NATIONAL SEED SWAP DAY cultivates a diverse garden by trading one of the oldest commodities.  Thriftiness and growing rare varieties are just some of the reasons to trade in seed.

For Fun

LORD, we ask that You be with those who have recently lost loved ones.  Wrap Your arms around them and comfort them.  Loss is never easy but may hope and love fill that void.  I ask this in Your name, Jesus, Amen.
