Angelo Smells The Flowers

I taught Angelo to take some time out from his busy schedule to smell the flowers. Well, they’re not as fresh, but it’s still cute to see a cat do something so human.

It’s About Thyme/Θυμαρι

Thyme is a great plant to have it can be used to treat an ailing cough or sore throat by consuming it as a tea. Another use is as a mosquito repellant, just rub the plant in between your palms to release the oils. Thyme has a lot of  vitamin A and C and when used in your favourite dish it has been proven to lower blood pressure. Also, thyme has antibacterial properties and can be used to fight acne. There are much more uses and that’s what I love about botanicals.

Many Crosses to Bear

to sit on

so I’ll count my losses

and carry gold crosses

I will win this war.

 “And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.” Matthew 10:38

καὶ ὃς οὐ λαμβάνει τὸν σταυρὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀκολουθεῖ ὀπίσω μου, οὐκ ἔστιν μου ἄξιος.”  ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΤΘΑΙΟΝ 10:38
