No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
I haven’t written a single thing about our vacation to Acadia National Park. Shockingly remiss of me, considering the level of planning, organization, and expense we went to for our biggest vacation of the year. My delightful parents even flew out from Seattle to join us on our Maine jaunt, and yet I continue to neglect my reporting duty. Shameful.
