Winter Flowers in Southern California #2

This is a very easily grown succulent. It is Jade. If any one of those leaves is planted it will grow into another bush. I like it because it is so proliferent in January, especially since we have had a couple of weeks of good rain. Its flowers are in heads of pale pink florets.

Quite tiny, but so pretty and delicate. We have several quite large bushes of these in our back and front yards.

Anything that blooms in January is worth noting. By the weekend we will be having another Santa Ana. A mixed blessing, because we love the warm weather but the fires can also come, along with the Santa Ana winds.

Off the subject, but an important part of my life is the fact that I start my new Bible Study session tomorrow. We will be studying the book of Hebrews. Quite a challenge, but these ladies love a challenge. Honestly, I have three ladies who are in their nineties and quite a few in their eighties but they are sharp and love to study the Bible. Tomorrow we will do an introductory lesson to see how we got from Hosea (which we studied last summer and fall) to Hebrews -- a leap of about 700 years. Below are some of the books I use to study and prepare from. Moth just gave me two more, yesterday. One is, "Jesus, our Man in Glory" by A. W. Tozer, for all you Tozer fans out there. We were privileged to sit under Tozer's preaching when we lived in Toronto many years ago. What a blessing!

P. S. So far, Bailey's diet is progressing well.

I too am on a diet! I need to get into my biking gear so we can head over to Flamborough.
Wont be yet however!

Oh my Chris, I'm must say I'm a bit jealous.... I love A.W. Tozer, and to think to sat under his preaching.

I had the pleasure of sitting under the preaching of J. Vernon Church of the Open Door, LA when I was going to Biola.

These are treasures we won't forget!

I start a Bible Study on Jan 20 in the church we are attending. These ladies have never had a consistant study, so I'm starting them out easy with a Bible Study based on the book Calm my Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow. It's 12 weeks, and we'll see how committed these women are.... and move on from there!

I'm looking forward to is. You can retire, but that doesn't change your call to serve our Lord.
