saturday's project

(see the dark patches? blueberry plants.)
Wherever the river goes, every living creature that swarms will live, and there will be very many fish, once these waters reach there. It will become fresh; and everything will live where the river goes. On the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.

Ezekiel 47:9, 12

...and there will be blueberries.

You're going to love those bushes and their berries like crazy. I hope you'll show them to us as they grow.

Oh, may they fruit bounteously! I think as a child I did not fully appreciate the poetry in the Bible, though my mom loved it for its poetry as much as anything and tried to share that with her children.

Love the concept of river as sanctuary, for it has so often been so for me.
