SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
You cannot have Easter without marshmallow Peeps--NOT POSSIBLE.  Without Bob Born, there would be no Peeps.  Bob Born is a quiet physicist who lives here in Florida.   We call him Mr. Peeps.    Bob is retired now and his kids run the candy factory his own Dad started.   In 1953, it took 27 hours to create one PEEPS® Marshmallow Chick by hand. Today, thanks to advances in technology, it takes six minutes. And they make 1.2 BILLION Peeps a year, sold all around the world.  Thank you Mr. Peeps !

Origins of The Easter Lily

Easter Lily Care
http://lancaster.unl.edu/hort/nebline/easterlily.shtml




Legend of the Dogwood

At the time of the crucifixion, the dogwood had reached the size of the mighty oak tree. So strong and firm was the wood that it was chosen as the timber for Jesus' cross.

To be used for such a cruel purpose greatly distressed the dogwood. While nailed upon it, Jesus sensed this, and in his compassion said. "Because of your pity for my suffering, never again shall the dogwood tree grow large enough to be used for a cross. Henceforth, it shall be slender, bent, and twisted, and its blossoms shall be in the form of a cross–two long and two short petals.

"In the center of the outer edge of each petal will be the print of nails. In the center of the flower, stained with blood, will be a crown of thorns so that all who see it will remember."

Keep Lettuce from Wilting
To make lettuce last longer, take it out of its plastic bag and store it in a brown paper bag—this will allow moisture to escape. And do not store lettuce with apples, pears or bananas in the same refrigerator bin. (You can store ripe bananas in the refrigerator, by the way.) Their ripening gases will cause the lettuce to turn brown and yucky.

Jokes and Cartoons


A mother was teaching her 3-year-old the Lord's prayer. For several evenings at bedtime she repeated it after her mother. One night she
said she was ready to solo. The mother listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer.
"Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us some E-mail, Amen."




A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?"
One bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping."



Q: How does the Easter bunny paint all the Easter eggs?
A: She hires Santa’s elves during off-season.

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan


Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY!
'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
