~~~~~~National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April~~~~~~
~April 29th, 2011~
"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."
This is how the Bible describes a
"Godly" man. Strong and wise, like a TREE with roots
One who will not be driven by the wind. One that is not like chaff.
In the year 2011 it will be on Friday ~April 29th, 2011~

Plant a Tree - Happy Arbor Day!
"Arbor Day which has already
transplanted itself to every state in the American Union and has
been adopted in foreign lands... is not like other holidays. Each of those reposes on the past,
while Arbor Day proposes for the future."
----J. Sterling Morton----
Arbor means "tree" in Latin. Arbor Day is a special day that has been set aside for planting and caring
for trees. The first Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska on April 10, 1872. It was started by
J. Sterling Morton, a Nebraska newspaper publisher who encouraged Nebraskans to plant trees to
beautify and enrich the treeless state. He offered prizes for the most trees planted;
over a million trees were planted on that first Arbor Day.
Isaiah 65:22 "They shall not build,
and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as
days of a tree [are] the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands."
