Pine Trees

I hope everyone has a Good Friday. I'm off work today which I should help Hubby paint some more on the kitchen, but on my day off, I think I'll go shopping. He has to do some trim work, so by the time he finishes that, I'll probably be back.....maybe! Anyway, this is something my sister sent me that I wanted to share. I have no idea if it's true or not, but I thought it was interesting:

The Pine trees start their new growth in the weeks before Easter -- if you look at the tops of the Pine trees two weeks before, you will see the yellow shoots. As the days get closer to Easter Sunday, the tallest shoot will branch off and form a cross. By the time Easter Sunday comes around, you will see that most of the Pine trees will have small yellow crosses on all of the tallest shoots. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU WATCH FOR THE CROSS AND MAY IT SERVE AS A REMINDER THAT IT WAS UPON A CROSS THAT JESUS DIED. HE DIED FOR YOUR SINS AND MINE. HAVE YOU ACCEPTED THAT? HAVE YOU ACCEPTED HIM AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR? IF NOT, NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO ACCEPT HIM. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FREE GIFT HE GAVE YOU, THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE.
