A QUOTE




A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love

~Saint Basil~

  6. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in its season...
    This quote took my mind to the Psalm above that I partially quoted. That's a great tree, Denise. Happy Saturday to you.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
