What uncommon things do we want to become common?

Things like:
our children having mutual love and respect for each other.
our teenage children having love, honor, respect and obedience for their parents.
us continually becoming better friends and lovers.
our family totally trusting God in all things and putting our faith in Him to fulfill his promises.

River Adventures

By Creg

Thursday we were down at the river with some friends investigating a bee hive that Sterling had discovered. It is in a tree that broke in two leaving the bees confused about their hive being in two pieces. We thought about piecing together a bee suit & trying to salvage their hive so we could start getting our own honey. After thinking through the possibilities of what could happen with a swarm of ticked off bees, we decided to wait & see if we could find someone who knew what they were doing.

While some of us were trying to get as close as we could to the bees without making any sudden movements, Sterling was down the river a bit catching a 13 inch gar with his net. It was very pretty, especially the big golden tail with black spots. Sterling brought it to his room/aquarium/terrarium and put him in the big 40 gallon tank with the red-eared slider turtle. He watched them for few minutes to see if they could play nicely with each other. Confident that they were getting along well, he went to eat supper. When he came back after supper the turtle had bitten off several chunks of the gar's tail fin & part of his front fin. Seems like someone wasn't happy about having to share his tank. So, the turtle ended up in the bathtub & the gar has the tank all to himself, along with a few river minnows & shrimp for dinner. Do gar's tail fins grow back?
