E

aster is the Christian holi-
day that celebrates the res-
urrection of Jesus Christ. It
comes in the early spring,
between March 22 and April 25
in most Christian beliefs. In the
year 325, the first Nicene
Council established the means of
determining the date on which
Easter Sunday would fall each
year: the first Sunday after the
first full moon that occurs after
March 21. This year, Easter
Sunday falls on April 8.
The name for the holiday is
believed to have been taken from
Eastre, the ancient northern
European goddess of spring, or
Eastur, which is a Germanic fes-
tival of spring. The story of
Easter can be found in the Bible,
where the body of Christ disap-
pears from the tomb early on the
third day after his crucifixion.
When Mary Magdalene entered
the tomb, Christ appeared before
her and she threw herself at his
feet. According to John 20:17,
he told her: "Do not touch me,
for I have not yet ascended to my
father, but go to my brethren and
say to them, 'I ascend to my
Father and your Father, to my
God and your God.' ''
Ash Wednesday begins the
40-day period of Lent. This is a
time of fasting and prayer in
honor of Christ’s 40-day fast in
the wilderness. The last week of
Lent is known as Holy Week,
symbolizing Christ’s last week on
earth. It starts with Palm Sunday,
which comes one week before
Easter Sunday and simulates the
palms that were spread along the
road as Jesus entered Jerusalem.
Good Friday marks the occur-
rence of the crucifixion of Christ
and his victory over death.
Easter has always been asso-
ciated with a joyous awakening
and the coming of life, and vari-
ous symbols reflect this. The egg
is a symbol of a new life returning
to nature, and the coloring of
eggs goes back to ancient Egypt
and Persia, where it heralded the
coming of spring. European
nations use red dye on eggs to
represent the resurrection of
Christ, and in England messages
and dates are written on eggs and
given as gifts. Colored eggs were
also used by the early Christians,
and candy eggs became popular
in the United States during the
1800s.
The cross, lambs, and rab-
bits are other symbols of Easter
that represent life. The sign of
the cross stands for the crucifix-
ion. The lamb symbolizes Jesus,
who was known as the "Lamb of
God." The rabbit represents a
new life in some cultures.
The Easter Bunny that
brings the colored eggs on Easter
has long been a source of joy for
children (and adults) and is said

T
he Passover holiday
and its history are very
important to those of
the Jewish faith. Passover is
biblically a seven-day festival
that is observed by some Jews
outside of Israel as an eight-
day holiday. It is a springtime
holiday, beginning on the 15th
day of the Hebrew month of
Nissan. The festival com-
memorates the exodus from
Egypt and celebrates freedom.
After toiling in slavery
under numerous pharaohs in
Egypt, Moses was chosen to
tell the pharaoh to let the
Israelite people go, with the
warning of numerous horrors
taking place if his words were
not followed. Since Moses'
words fell on deaf ears, Egypt
was struck by nine devastating
plagues that destroyed crops,
livestock, and the water sup-
ply.
The 10th plague took
place on the 15th of Nissan,
1313 B.C. at the stroke of mid-
night: all firstborns in Egypt
were killed. However, the
homes of the Children of
Israel were “passed over” by
the Angel of Death on that
night, and then the pharaoh
gave into Moses' demands.
The Israelites began their trek
to Mount Sinai shortly there-
after; the Bible tells us that
600,000 fighting men led the
exodus from Egypt.
The week long obser-
vance of Passover is marked by
eating matzah (unleavened
bread) and avoiding all leav-
ened products. The first and
last days are full festivals with
all the restrictions that tradi-
tional Jews observe on
Shabbat, including refraining
from working or engaging in
commerce, so that they can
focus on the religious celebra-
tion. Candles are lit and
sumptuous holiday meals are
eaten.
Because the Israelites left
Egypt in a hurry and did not
have time to let their bread
rise, those observing the holi-
day will eat unleavened bread,
called matzah. In fact all food
with chametz, or leavening,
are avoided throughout the
holiday. Processed foods and
drinks are assumed to be
chametz unless certified other-
wise. The house must be rid of
all unleavened food before
Passover, with a burning tak-
ing place on the morning
before the holiday.
A 15-step tradition and
ritual feast highlighting
Passover, the Seder, is observed
on the first two nights of the
holiday. The main points are to
eat matzah and bitter herbs to
commemorate the slavery the
Israelites endured, and to drink
four cups of grape juice or wine
to celebrate the new freedom
that was expressed by leaving
Egypt. The Seder also contains
the Haggadah, a liturgical his-
tory of the exodus told to chil-
dren. This fulfills a biblical
obligation to account to young
people the story of leaving
Egypt on the night of Passover.
The rituals of the
Passover Seder enable the cel-
ebrants to both remember their
origins and to experience their
own liberation.

RS Commissioner Doug
Shulman announced a
major expansion of the
Fresh Start Initiative in a
press release dated March 7th.
The Fresh Start initiative, first
introduced in 2008 as a part of
a larger program to help tax-
payers address their tax liabil-
ities, assists qualified taxpayers
in three major areas: penalty
relief, installment agreements,
and offers in compromise.
Penalty Relief
Late-payment penalties
(one-half percent per month
of the unpaid tax amount up
to a maximum of 25 percent)
are abated until October 15,
2012 as long as the tax, inter-
est, and any other penalties
are paid by that date. Certain
wage earners and self-
employed individuals are
given a six-month grace peri-
od for failure-to-pay penalties.
The penalty relief will be
available to wage earners who
were unemployed for at least
30 consecutive days during
2011 or in 2012 (up to April
15, 2012) and self-employed
individuals who experienced a
25 percent or greater reduc-
tion in 2011 business income
(compared to 2010) due to
the economic downturn.
A qualifying taxpayer fil-
ing as single or head of house-
hold may not have adjusted
gross income (AGI) greater
than $100,000. Married tax-
payers who file jointly do not
qualify if their AGI is more
than $200,000. This penalty
relief is restricted to taxpayers
whose calendar year 2011 bal-
ance due (taxes owed less pay-
ments and withholding) does
not exceed $50,000.
Tax returns must be filed
timely. This means taxpayers
must file their returns by April
17, 2012 or file for an exten-
sion to October 15, 2012.
Failure-to-file penalties will
not be waived. New form
1127-A must be filed to quali-
fy for relief.
Installment Agreements
The Fresh Start provi-
sions also allow more taxpay-
ers to qualify for installment
agreements to pay taxes owed.
Effective immediately, taxpay-
ers owing taxes of $50,000

Wayne Rotary has raised and
donated well over a half-mil-
lion dollars to assist worth-
while local causes.
“This beefsteak dinner
will have a 'spring fling' décor,
with all kinds of bright col-
ors,” said Wayne Rotary
President Barbara Schroeder.
“There will be music and
dancing, and we hope to
attract attendees from all over
our community. The event
doesn’t require any special
attire, but attendees are
encouraged to wear bright
spring colors.”
This is the eighth annual
beefsteak fundraiser for

es will just keep coming and
coming until everyone is satis-
fied.

savings).

dards, and help build goodwill
and peace in the world. It

For more information, call the
to have its beginnings in
Germany. During a time of
famine, a woman colored
some eggs and hid them in a
nest so that her children could
have them at Easter time.
When the children discovered
the nest, they saw a large rab-
bit hopping away from the
sight, so they believed that the
rabbit had brought the bright-
ly colored eggs to them.
There is much more to
Easter and this time of year,
but no matter how deeply and
involved a discussion may go,
one fact remains: Easter is not
a time of sadness, but of joy. It
is a way for Christians to rec-
ognize the sacrifices that were
made for them and the direc-
tion in which they should go
in order to understand its true
meaning.
D
ogs have a unique way
of introducing them-
selves to other dogs:
they sniff each other’s back-
sides. They do this because
each dog has a unique scent
produced by its anal glands, or
anal sacs. These play an
important role in dogs' behav-
ior. Dogs use this scent to
identify one another and to
communicate. When they
were in the wild, they used it
to mark their territory and to
scare off enemies.
Anal glands are located
just beneath the skin on either
side of the anus. The glands
produce a foul, fishy-smelling
liquid. When your pet defe-
cates, a small amount of this
liquid is excreted, contribut-
ing to your dog’s personal fra-
grance.
Most people never even
know these glands exist
because in most pets they
don’t cause any problems.
However, if anal glands aren't
expressed, or emptied, they
can cause a number of issues
for your pet.
The most common prob-
lem occurs when the liquid
produced by the glands
becomes too thick to be
expressed. This results in
impaction, which is extremely
uncomfortable for your pet.
Typical signs of impaction
include scooting (dragging the
rear along the ground) and
licking or biting the rear.
Sometimes stool may become
loose or a drop of blood can be
seen in it.
Anal gland impaction
can usually be cleared up
quickly by your veterinarian.
Your veterinarian will manu-
ally express the anal glands.
This can be a onetime trip to
the vet’s office, but for many
dogs, anal gland impaction is
an ongoing problem.
The consistency of an
animal’s stool can also affect
anal gland function. Stools
that are too small or too soft
might not push on the glands
enough to cause expression.
That's why it's important to
make sure your pet eats a qual-
ity diet, high in fiber, to
ensure large, solid stools. A
natural way to bulk the feces is
to add a small amount of
canned pumpkin to the diet.
If impacted anal glands
are left untreated, abscesses
can develop quickly. In this
case, your pet will experience
moderate to severe pain. The
scooting and licking become
more frequent, and dogs will
often growl or bite when
someone tries to touch them
anywhere in that area. Anal
gland abscesses usually require
more invasive treatment like
lancing and draining, plus
antibiotics. It is therefore
important to bring your pet to
your veterinarian as soon as
you notice any signs that
might indicate an anal gland
problem.
You are lucky if your pet
has never had problems with
its anal glands. Now that you
know they exist, it is impor-
tant to watch for any symp-
toms and to act promptly if
they develop.

IRS with a financial state-

who cannot pay the entire
amounts owed by the due date
may enter into a payment plan
extending payments up to a
maximum term of 72 months.
Although penalties are
reduced, interest continues to

must agree to monthly direct
debit payments. Taxpayers can
set up an agreement online at
www.irs.gov by going to the
online payment agreement

instructions.
Offers in Compromise
Liberalized rules for offers
in compromise (agreements
between taxpayers and the
IRS to settle a taxpayer’s lia-
bility for less than the full
amount owed) as set forth in
the earlier Fresh Start remain
in effect. Those changes allow
more taxpayers to qualify and
allow for some changes to the
program to more closely
reflect real-world situations.
According to Shulman,
the changes to the Fresh Start
initiative reflect the IRS’s
obligation to assist taxpayers
struggling to pay their bills.

A
t the conclusion of
the Youth Choir
Festival hosted by
Bethany Christian Services on
March 9, approximately 250
teens filled the altar at Cedar
Hill Reformed Church in
Wyckoff. Talented young peo-
ple from three Christian
schools and the North Jersey
Homeschoolers Association
— representing various races
and ethnicities — nearly over-
flowed into the aisles as they
sang “America the Beautiful”
and put an exclamation point
on a stirring evening of song
and celebration.
At that moment, Doug
Hoogerhyde, a Franklin Lakes
resident and Bethany
Christian Services board
member, looked over the
crowd of students and made a
comparison that helped the
audience realize the impact
the nation’s largest adoption
agency is making in the
Tristate area.
“The amount of students
on the altar now
represents the
same number of
children this
Bethany branch
has placed with
loving families
over the past
five years,” he
said.
“That num-
ber, 250, high-
lights the impor-
tance of every
life,” said Nancy
Dykstra-Powers, a Hawthorne
resident and the director of
Bethany Christian Services in
Fair Lawn. “The fact that
teens gave their Friday night
to sing was awesome.”
Bethany Christian
Services is a global non-profit
organization serving
orphaned, abandoned, and
vulnerable children on five
continents. The choir festival
was a fund-raising event for
local Bethany branches and
also helped inform attendees
about Bethany’s wide-reaching
mission, which also includes
placement of special needs
children, assistance for strug-
gling birthparents, and pro-
grams that build awareness
through networks with hospi-
tals and crisis pregnancy cen-
ters in the local community.
At the Youth Choir
Festival, groups from Eastern
Christian High School in
North Haledon, Hawthorne
Christian Academy, Koinonia
Academy in Plainfield,
and the North Jersey
Homeschoolers Association
each performed short sets that
were sandwiched between
mass choir selections at the
beginning and end of the
evening.
“What a profound, mov-
ing experience and opportuni-
ty for students to worship with
new and old friends, harmo-
nizing to benefit Bethany
Service's mission,” said
Suzanne Kraai, choir director
at Eastern Christian High
School.
“Hawthorne Christian
Academy was honored to be
part of the festival,” said Anne
Paynter, the academy's choir
director. “It was wonderful to
partner with other Christian
schools in the community,
working together to benefit
such a worthy ministry.”
Another highlight of the
evening was a video sent by
college freshman Sandeep
Thomas, who was rescued
from a life of heartache and
poverty in India when he was
adopted 14 years ago. At age 5,
he witnessed the horrific sui-
cide of his mother and, after
being abandoned by an alco-
holic father, was placed with
an American family through
Bethany’s New Jersey office.
Through a video appear-
ance, Thomas, a student
at the University of
Washington-Bothell, invited
the audience to join him at
Bethany’s annual banquet on
Wednesday, May 23 at 6pm
at the Venetian in Garfield.
Thomas will be the keynote
speaker and his younger sis-
ter Ruth — also adopted
through Bethany — will sing.
“We are excited to have
Sandeep as our speaker,” said
Dykstra-Powers. “I had the
privilege of working with
Sandeep and his family when
he first came to this country in
1998. At the banquet, we will
hear his amazing story and
how he is making a difference
in this world.”

T
rue or False: Smoking
is a risk factor for low
back pain.
True. Surprising as it sounds,
smoking can be a predisposing
factor to back pain. Not only
does smoking promote a
sedentary lifestyle incongru-
ous with health and wellness,
but research published in the
respected medical journal
SPINE suggests smoking
may actually accelerate
breakdown of the spinal
discs; reduce blood flow to
the vertebral bodies, thus
inhibiting oxygen supply
and nutrition to the
discs; compromise muscular
endurance, thus promoting
faster fatigue of back and
postural muscles, leaving
them more prone to injury;
and be associated with anxi-
ety and depression, which,
in turn, may foster and exac-
erbate back pain.
True or False: Early morn-
ing is the best time of day to
exercise.
False. Although early morn-
ing exercise may be one's
preference, and despite the
fact that some studies suggest
greater aerobic benefit is
gained by exercising at this
time of day, exercising within
the first two hours of waking
up has been shown to be
detrimental to maintaining a
healthy back and spine.
The reason for this is
twofold. First, the body's
nervous system is sluggish
upon wakening, causing the
muscles to react slowly to any
type of physical exertion.
According to Dr. Vladimir
Janda, a world leader in mus-
culoskeletal medicine, mus-
cle spindles in the early
morning remain "sleeping"
and may be disassociated
from the nervous system for
up to two hours. Secondly,
three times as much pressure
is exerted on spinal discs in
the early morning than at
any other time of day. This

the last several years. Indoor
rock climbing walls adapt the
mountainous terrain of rock
climbing into a safe and
equally exciting experience
for children.
Kids' Therapy Center in
Riverdale is thrilled to add a
rock climbing wall to its spe-
cialized services. This unique
program allows all children,
despite neurological, skeletal,
muscular, or developmental
diagnoses, to use the wall.
This wall is a way of saying
that we are all similar.
Any child with weak-
ness, whether from a sports
injury or cerebral palsy, can
reap the benefits of rock
climbing. A climbing program
builds lifelong wellness by
cultivating qualities such as
problem solving, goal setting,
risk taking, perseverance,
patience, and confidence.
The climbing program
allows children to attempt
something they may fear. A
child will first need to evalu-
ate how to get up the wall. He
or she can then proceed to set
a goal and attempt a physical
solution to the challenge. As
more risks are taken to get to
the next stone and move
higher up the wall, courage
grows.
Perseverance develops as
attempts are made to solve
problems along the way to the
top. Although it may be diffi-
cult to reach the next stone
both physically and mentally,
willpower and patience allow
the procession to continue.
Confidence grows with each
successful conquest.
Rock climbing also helps
children with their motor
planning because they have to
think about and plan their
next moves on the wall.
Climbing teaches team-
work because the climber is
attached to an automatic
belay, or rope, for which the
belayer is responsible. The
belayer helps to support the
child, so the child must learn
to trust the belayer and the
equipment.
The automatic belay is
secured to a body harness. The
use of the automatic belay and
harness allows the climber to
remain in an upright position,
even if the child has poor
head or trunk control. It is an
absolutely safe device that
makes it impossible for a child
to fall, since the belay auto-
matically and gradually brings
the child down if he or she

O
n the verge of its fifth
anniversary, The
Parish Store in
Pompton Lakes has moved
into a larger space just one
building down from its old
location. Coinciding with the
move is the launch of a new
website: theparishstore.com.
The move comes just in
time for its busiest season,
when First Communions and
confirmations take place. The
new location at 326 Wanaque
Ave. allows for increased
inventory, making it easier for
customers to find the religious
items they need.
Owner Blake Pra Sisto is
happy to assist with sugges-
tions and to offer her expert
knowledge of the perfect gifts
for this season and any other
occasion. Whether specialized
First Communion or confir-
mation presents, touching
keepsakes in the event of ill-
nesses or deaths, or meaning-
ful items for other sacraments
and events, you can find it at
The Parish Store.
The store also has an
extensive selection of bibles,
including gift editions that
can be personally engraved,
and a wide variety of rosary
beads in every price category.
You can also find statues and
wall crosses in an array of
styles. There are enough
choices to fit everyone’s tastes.
Pra Sisto is happy to wel-
come the young men and
women who often visit the
store for religious jewelry;
bracelets sporting pictures of
saints and cord rosary
bracelets are among the
favorites.
“I love my saint’s
bracelet,” said Rose Lopiano,
16. “My friends are always
interested in finding out who
each saint is.”
Pra Sisto said she often
helps parents and family
members find items that help
nurture faith in their children.
“A small token can have
a surprising effect,” said Rose’s
mother. “A simple reminder of
faith can be significant.”
From personalized music
boxes to inspirational stones
quarried in the Holy Land,
The Parish Store provides
gifts that connect people to
their faith.
Shop online at thep-
arishstore.com, call 973-835-
0009, or visit the new location
at 326 Wanaque Ave. in
Pompton Lakes to find the
perfect religious gift.

the costs of producing the
show. Auditions for both the
camp and the show will be
Monday May 14 OR Tuesday,
May 15. Ages 7-14 should plan
to be at the church from 6:00 to
7:00 PM for a group audition.
Please be on time and plan to
stay the whole audition period.
We will sing songs from Oliver
and Wizard of Oz, read lines
and learn some dance steps.
Ages 15 and above should
come from 7:00 - 8:00 PM for
group auditions. You will sing
songs from Oliver!, read from
the script, and learn a short
dance routine. An audition
prep class will occur May 6
from 2-3 PM for youth and 3-4
PM for adults. The public is
encouraged to get involved in
comes off the wall.
In addition to the psy-
chological and emotional ben-
efits of climbing, there are
endless physical benefits.
Reaching for handholds and
footholds develops flexibility.
Moving hands and feet simul-
taneously on both sides of the
body develops coordination.
Cardiovascular fitness results
from increasing speed and the
number of trials on the wall.
Every muscle group in the
body gets a workout. As the
child’s skill level advances,
the wall can be made more
challenging by moving stones
wider apart to increase step
length, or by using smaller
stones.
Climbing strengthens the
body, challenges the mind,
and builds the spirit. Kids'
Therapy Center is currently
accepting new applicants for
its rock climbing wall pro-
gram.

Y
our adrenals are
endocrine glands that
sit right above your
kidneys and are responsible
for releasing hormones, main-
ly in response to stress. These
hormones regulate all the
functions of your body,
including your thyroid and
sex hormones. They also
influence your ability to
metabolize fat, to regulate
blood sugar, and to deal with
stress.
What are the symptoms of
adrenal fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue is just
what it sounds like: when your
adrenals are tired. And when
your adrenals are tired, so are
you. Other symptoms of adre-
nal fatigue include anxiety
attacks, weight gain (specifi-
cally around the belly), and
having a tough time getting or
staying asleep.
What causes adrenal fatigue?
There are numerous rea-
sons your adrenal glands go
into overdrive and get
fatigued, but the common
denominator is stress. Daily
life puts a heavy demand on
your adrenal system, far
beyond what it can handle.
We all experience normal
stress factors in our lives.
These continual little things
are the wake-up call we need
to take care of our adrenals
and give them some tender
loving care before they give
up on us. Taking steps to
reduce stress in your life is the
golden ticket to healthy living
and adrenal restoration.
Taking the right supple-
ments in addition to eating a
whole-food diet is the impor-
tant first step to adrenal
repair. Vitamin C is essential
to the production of adrenal
glands and theirs hormones,
and is used up very quickly by
the body when it is under
stress. It also plays an impor-
tant role in the body’s ability
to burn fat. In addition, there
is almost always a magnesium
deficiency when you have
adrenal fatigue. Magnesium at
bedtime will help you relax
O
n March 10, Esther
Del Carpio of Little
Falls and her dog
Molly celebrated 300 pet thera-
py visits when they arrived at
Emeritus of Wayne for its
“Wayne Idol” Talent Show.
Two celebrities made
appearances to honor Esther
and Molly. First was comedian
Buddy Flip of Queens, who
opened the show with his won-
derful humor and interacted
with the residents in his special
way. Next, to everyone’s sur-
prise, Ms. Courtney Charatsaris
of Totowa, who is the reigning
Miss Cape Shores and who will
compete for the title of Miss
New Jersey, made a beautiful
entrance and wowed the audi-
ence with a song, as well as
speech about her platform cure
for cancer.
Next came a performance
by Packanack Daisy Troop
#660 to celebrate spring. They
did a hula dance and gave out
handmade cards to each resi-
dent. Following that was the
children’s choir from Our Lady
of the Holy Angel’s Church in
Little Falls. They wowed the
audience with their harmo-
nious voices.
Then began the talent
show. Participants included
Julia, 6, singing an Adele song;
Kassidy, 8, doing the hoola-
hoop; Emily, 10, playing the
violin; Shayla, an 8th grader,
singing a Elvis song; and
Kellyann, an 8th grader,
singing an Adele song.
The judges were tied so
they asked the audience. The
winner was 6-year-old Julia for
her rendition of an Adele
song. She received the largest
trophy and flowers. Other par-
ticipants also received tro-
phies and flowers.
For the finale there was a
grab bag for all residents, as well
as a beautiful cake.
Del Carpio said she would
like to thank all the moms and
dads who worked so hard to
make the program a success.

utdoor play is
a highlight of
c h i l d h o o d .
Being able to run, jump
and swing outside is an
excellent form of exer-
cise and a way for kids
to interact with their
friends.
One staple of youthful
play is spending time on
a play set in the back-
yard. Parents without a play
set in the backyard need only
look into a neighboring yard
with a play set to witness
these prime congregation
spots for the neighborhood
children. And play sets don't
just benefit kids. Parents who
want to keep tabs on their
children can do so much
more easily with a backyard
play set, and knowing they
are having fun close by alle-
viates worries.
The decision to pur-
chase a play set is one pon-
dered by parents all across
the country. There are scores
of ready-made varieties avail-
able or sets that can be cus-
tom designed. The choice of
which one to buy should be
based on a number of factors,
both in desired features and
also models that offer safety.
Materials
The first decision par-
ents face is which material to
use for the play set. The main
materials used to build play
sets are plastic, metal and
wood. Plastic sets tend to be
very basic and may be
reserved for young children's
sets. While they can go out-
side, they may not last more
than a few years and are
often best relegated to indoor
toys.
Metal sets are some of
the most durable and strong.
They are frequently seen at
parks and playgrounds. Metal
play sets are often cemented
down to a foundation for sta-
bility, which doesn't make
them ideal for a temporary

Wayne, Inc. (GACW), 1 PAL
Drive in Wayne, NJ is an active
non-profit senior group spon-
set that will be removed
when the kids outgrow it.
Also, you cannot generally
add onto a metal set.
Wooden sets are usually
a compromise between the
two. They're good for back-
yards because they can be
taken down when they're no
longer used. They can also be
made more useful with add-
on attachments, such as
extra slides, rock walls and
different swing variations.
Safety
Play sets are designed for
children, so all of them
should be safe, right? Not
exactly. Some manufacturers
cut corners or create some-
what questionable designs.
Look for recessed hardware
and bolts so that clothing
doesn't snag on pieces that
stick out.
Choose play sets that
have handles for extra stabil-
ity while children are climb-
ing. Avoid ones with metal
hardware that can rust and
weaken over time. Wood-to-
wood attachments won't rust
and will be more durable.
When choosing wood
sets, be sure to select hard-
woods that will not soften
and warp. In addition,
choose designs that feature
rounded edges so there will
be less chance for splinters or
injuries from hitting blunt
edges.
Be sure to have plastic-
covered chains on swings and
other moveable parts so that
fingers cannot get inside of
the links and be pinched.
Check to make sure
treated and stained wood
does not contain harmful
material, like arsenic, that
can leach out of the wood
into the surrounding soil.
Some parents also may
want to look for a wooden
play set that is made from
materials harvested following
sustainable forestry guidelines.
This gives parents some peace
of mind knowing their child's
play set is eco-friendly.
Play sets can be fun addi-
tions to the backyard. They
come in many different sizes
and configurations, so it's pos-
sible to find one that will fit in
any backyard.

The Beauty of Natural Stone
Natural Stone offers beauty, easy care and
durability. Granite is often found in upscale
and sophisticated residences, palaces and
hotels throughout the world due to its texture
and luster.
Natural stone provides the look and feel of
elegance through a quality and strength that
will never be reached by other materials.
Next to diamonds, granite is the strongest
stone in the world. So, like diamonds, granite
is forever!
In natural hard surfaces like granite, a certain
amount of “movement” or grain is usually
expected. Many people find this flow and
blending of colors to be the most compelling
reason for using genuine stone.
Why is Natural Stone the right choice?

N
ow is the time of year
to focus on outdoor
landscaping projects.
One popular project involves
redesigning the front yard or
backyard to include an array
of different flowers and
foliage. While many people
gravitate to the flashy and col-
orful annuals on display at
nurseries and home centers,
you may want to consider
adding some succulents to
your home landscape.
Succulent plants can be a
boon to a homeowner without
the time or resources to main-
tain plants. Succulents get
their name from their primary
function, which is drawing up
and storing water. Succulents
are able to thrive in arid con-
ditions, and there are more
than 300 different types,
including some exotic species.
The advantages to plant-
ing succulents are many.
Because they store water in
their stems, roots and leaves,
this reduces the number of
times an owner must water
them. Succulents can go sev-
eral days between waterings.
Succulents, like cacti, that
have few if any leaves, are per-
haps best at managing water
because they lose little to
evaporation through the
foliage.
Succulents are particu-
larly good to have in areas
prone to arid temperatures or
where water restrictions are
often in place. They can be
environmentally friendly
because of their ability to con-
serve water. Succulents treat
water as a precious resource,
and their entire makeup is
designed to minimize con-
sumption of water.
Because they thrive in
sunlight, succulents can be
the ideal plants to put in
extremely sunny and hot loca-
tions. They will not wither
and dry out due to extreme
heat. For particularly dry areas
of landscape or where soil is
will dissolve the scale and
make it easy to wipe away.
Kitchen
No matter how many
times you wash down a tiled
kitchen floor, grout has a
funny way of never quite
coming clean. Purchase a
grout-cleaning product from
a home store and use a stiff-
bristled brush or even a
toothbrush to get into the
grout lines. Then consider
using a grout stain and sealer
to prevent future discol-
oration.
Windows
Few things around the
house are as unsightly as torn
window screens. Whether on
house windows or porches,
torn screens tell visitors that
you don't care very much
about the appearance of your
home. But repairing window
screens is a relatively easy
task. There are screen replace-
ment kits that take you
through the process step-by-
step if you plan to replace the
entire screen. For very small
tears, you may be able to
patch the damage. There are
self-stick patches for screens,
but often the glue draws atten-
tion to the repair. Rather, get
a small piece of new screen
material and use an upholstery
needle and invisible finishing
thread to attach the patch.
Furniture
Remedy nicks with furni-
ture markers that can blend
into the wood grain or other
surface materials and mask the
dings and dents.

subpar, consider the place-
ment of different varieties of
succulents to create a varied
and eye-catching display.
There are many other
advantages to planting succu-
lents; some of which include:
•Succulents offer contrasts in
shape, texture and colors.
With the many varieties,
you're bound to find some-
thing interesting and different
to add to the landscape.
•Whether you have ample
acreage in the yard or simply
some containers available for
planting, succulents will
thrive. They grow just as well
in containers as they do in the
ground.
•Succulents don't tend to
require pruning or cutting
back of the plant. With this in
mind, you can expect them to
grow large. Therefore, space
the plants adequately to allow
for growth.
•Succulents are perennials.
So once you plant them, they
should last for years and years
without the hassle and
expense you can expect from
planting annuals every year.
•Indoor greenhouses or sun-
rooms can be another good
place for succulents. They pre-
fer not to get chilled, which
makes a controlled environ-
ment advantageous.
When considering a spot
for your succulents, choose
areas that get plenty of sun.
Think about pruning back or
removing trees that would
create too much shade on the
succulents. Space the succu-
lents widely apart — more so
than you would with other
plants — to allow them to
spread. Pebbles or gravel
make good mulching material
around succulents so that
drainage will be adequate. It
will also set the succulents
apart from other plants by
contextualizing them in your
garden.
Visit a gardening center
or home improvement store
to learn more about the myri-
ad types of succulents that
can add beauty to most gar-
dens.

"Ior I am the way, and the truth, and the ||fe: no one comes to the Iather, but through Me." lohn 14:õ

God’s

Cne day ln 1987 l was ouLslde my home ln klnnelon waLerlng my shrubs when l heard Cod call me Lo serve Plm. l remember saylng, ºl can'L go wlLh you Cod, l can'L leave my Lhree

sald, ºuo noL be afrald l have puL My words ln your mouLh." 1hen l asked Cod lf l should enroll ln a 8lble school and Cod answered: ºAnd as for you Lhe anolnLlng whlch you recelved

1he I|ood, Cross|ng the ked Sea, and the Iordan k|ver Compared to the Death, 8ur|a| and kesurrect|on of Chr|st
Old Testament: Passover Supper
Exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt and libera-
tion from bondage. Death passed over the children
of Israel because of the blood of the lamb on the door
posts. Foreshadow of the Messiah to come.
Foreshadow of Christ Crucified on the Cross
The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it
on a pole; anyone who is bitten by a snake can
look at it and live.”
Noah’s Ark: Eight Are Saved
The flood covered the entire earth and destroyed
it, but God saved Noah, his wife, his three sons and
their wives, a foreshadow of the remnant of Israel.
God Divides the Red Sea
God had the Israelites pass through the water, but
buried Pharaoh and His army into the sea.
God Divided the Jordan River
After the death of Moses, Joshua leads the twelve
tribes of Israel across the Jordan River to the
Promised Land.
God kestores n|s Þeop|e through n|s Son Iesus Chr|st
“Eat this bread and drink this wine in
remembrance of Me.”
Unleavened bread symbolizes Christ because He was
born without sin. The wine represents the Blood of
Christ shed for our sins.
He Who Takes Away the Sins of the World
Jesus endures the burden of our sins as He carries
them to the cross.
Christ Exchanges Places with Us on the Cross
Before Jesus died He said, “Father, forgive them
for they do not know what they are doing.” Christ
did not come to destroy the law or the Prophets,
but to fulfill them. “IT IS FINISHED”
“For God so loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in
Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
John 3:16
Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
She was the first person to see the risen Christ and
the first person to evangelize the good news to His
disciples. “HE’S ALIVE!”
Ior you w||| go before the Lord, to prepare n|s ways, g|ve n|s peop|e the know|edge of sa|vat|on, by the forg|veness of the|r s|n.
Christ Submits to God’s Will
Jesus being in agony, sweating blood as He knelt
down and prayed, “Father if thou art willing, to re-
move this cup from Me; yet not my will, but Thine
will be done.” Jesus submits to the Father.
We Submit to God’s Will
Just as Jesus prayed: “Father not my will, but Thy
will be done.”
Crucified with Christ: Spiritual Death
Humble yourself to the Lord, search your soul, ask
for God’s forgiveness, invite Jesus to come into
your heart and be the Lord of your life. You have
now died to self or your will.
Buried with Christ: Spiritual Death
If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and
believe in your heart that God raised Him from the
dead you shall be saved.
Risen with Christ: Spiritual Re-birth,
“Born Again”
Jesus said: “No one can enter the Kingdom of
Heaven unless he is born of water and Spirit.” Born
from above and sealed with the Holy Spirit.
New Testament: Last Supper The Lamb of God Christ Died Christ Buried Christ is Risen

S
elling a house is seldom
easy, and homeowners
are often willing to do
whatever it takes to make
their home more attractive to
prospective buyers. One of the
areas sellers typically focus on
is the home's landscaping. A
well-maintained lawn and gar-
den increases a property's curb
appeal considerably, increas-
ing the chances a buyer will
have a strong first impression
of the home.
But homeowners don't
need to have a green thumb to
ensure their lawn improves
curb appeal. The following are
a few tricks of the trade savvy
sellers can employ to make
their home an instant hit
when buyers pull up to the
curb.
•Color the landscape. The
plants outside a home should-
n't stick out like a sore thumb,
but a few splashes of color can
make a home more appealing.
For the cost of some annuals,
which are typically inexpen-
sive, homeowners can turn a
drab flower bed into a colorful
spot bound to catch a buyer's
eye.
•Lay down new layers of
mulch. Mulch is not only good
for plants, helping them to
retain moisture while inhibit-
ing weed germination and
growth, but a fresh layer of
mulch also adds to a yard's aes-
thetic appeal. Mulch made of
wood or bark chips is also slow
to decay, so apply a new batch
right before the "For Sale" sign
is erected and you might not
have to apply another batch
before selling the home.
•Prune trees and shrubs.
Pruning trees and shrubs is one
of the easiest and most effec-
tive ways to improve a land-
scape. Dead branches in
shrubs and trees might suggest
to buyers that the homeowners
weren't terribly preoccupied
with maintenance, and this
might cause them to think
twice about making an offer.
Stay on top of pruning regard-
less of what season it is, and be
sure to remove any fallen
branches from the yard on a
regular basis.
•Clean bird baths and other
water features. Water features
create a peaceful atmosphere
around a property if they're
well maintained. If not, buyers
won't see the yard as a sanctu-
ary but rather a place where
mosquitoes congregate and
odors emanate from algae-
filled water. Remove any
debris from water features,
including leaves and algae,
and clean the filters so water is
always clear.
•Invest in a power washer.
Buying a power washer might
be a tad over the top, but
homeowners whose yards are
filled with grimy surfaces
might find a power washer can
work wonders at restoring a
home's external appeal. If
plants are in pots that are cov-
ered in years-old dirt and
grime, a power washer can
restore the pot's luster in a
matter of minutes. Spray down
walkways and even home sid-
ing that has fallen victim to
dirt and grime over the years.
•If planting trees, don't go too
big. Especially large trees are
not always attractive to
prospective buyers, who likely
won't want sight lines
obstructed or won't want to
worry about a tree falling and
destroying their home during a
storm.
•Address issues with weeds. A

prevalent problem with weeds
around the property is another
situation that some buyers
might feel is indicative of neg-
lect. Weeds are a pretty simple
problem to remedy, so buyers
might be correct to assume
weeds around the property are
there because the homeowner
was not concerned with main-
tenance. Lay mulch around
flower beds and gardens to
reduce weed growth, and pull
any weeds from sidewalks and
the driveway. Once weeds are
pulled, spray areas that were
infested with a weed-treat-
ment product to ensure weeds
don't grow back.
A well-maintained land-
scape is a great way for men
and women hoping to sell
their homes to make a strong
first impression.

What can be done about
adrenal fatigue?
The amino acid GABA,
while not directly affecting
your adrenal glands, can be a
valuable part of your recovery
from adrenal fatigue. GABA
helps to reduce anxiety and to
relax mentally, and is benefi-
cial in assisting weight loss.
Forcing yourself to carry
on while you are tired increas-
es adrenal fatigue. As difficult
as it may be, try to sleep when
you are tired. Listen to your
body’s rhythms; it’s trying to
tell you something. Life is
about balance. Take the time
to honor your body.
Remember: if you do not take
care of yourself, how can you
take care of the ones you love?
