Major blueberry grower wiped out by Irma; help them replant

(STAFF)

Hurricane Irma downed approximately 100,000 blueberry bushes at Frogmore Fresh Farm, a 125-acre blueberry farm in Pasco County. If these plants are not re-staked and reestablished, they will die, a significant loss for the grower and the Florida blueberry industry. Searching for a solution, Whitney Elmore, UF/IFAS Extension Pasco County director, worked through the UF/IFAS network to recruit volunteers to come to the farm and help save the plants.

Love Refuses to Keep Score

“Love …. does not take into account a wrong suffered.” …I Corinthians 13: 4-5 (NASB)

Have you ever been hurt or wronged by someone?

What a question.

We all have been disappointed and hurt by the mistakes of others.

And so has God.

Sometimes that is weird to think, but God has feelings too. He too feels hurt when we make mistakes.

But God is so loving, and is so good, and is so merciful, and is so quick to forgive.
