2Ch 31:5 And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children

treasure and trouble therewith.
Pro 15:17 Better is a dinner of herbs where
love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.
Yellow bell peppers are still producing. I have planted pod peas

bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
