Breaking: A Judge has saved Sears from liquidation.  Although the company will survive, store closures are not expected to stop altogether. Grim reality: Over the last 15 years, Sears has closed more than 3,500 stores and cut about 250,000 jobs, leading to the company’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in October.  About 425 Sears locations survive.

Fact: Flowers have a “vase life”, and it’s not forever.

Obviously, it’s no great loss if a $10 supermarket bouquet wilts in a few days. B

ut Valentine roses can cost at least $60 a dozen. So, you want to be able to enjoy your fragrant gift for as long as possible.

A few do’s and don’ts on keeping flowers ‘fresher, longer’:

*Keep flowers in a cool place, out of direct sunlight.

Make sure all containers are scrupulously clean.

Remove any leaves below the water line.

Don’t leave dead flowers in the vase. Remove the ones that didn’t make it ASAP. -Start with fresh flowers—cut or buy them first thing in the morning.

Nearly four months into receiving chemotherapy, evangelist Anne Graham Lotz believes she will be healed after her seventh treatment next week.

The 70-year-old evangelist revealed in an update on her blog this week that she felt God had healed her after her fifth treatment and was pondering whether to stop.

“While praying with my two daughters following my fifth chemo treatment, God seemed to indicate He had healed me. Cleansed me. Removed cancer from me. I pondered in my heart what I believe He had said,” she wrote.

She sought God in prayer to confirm whether to continue with chemo.

 

“I could hear the clear whisper of the Spirit, answering my prayer, confirming that I was to continue chemo…my next and last full treatment would be my seventh time! So as much as I resist the ‘muck and mud,’ in obedience to God’s leading to complete the seventh infusion on Feb. 14, I am committed to seeing these treatments through to the end,” she said.

Lotz was diagnosed with breast cancer last August and began receiving chemotherapy in October. She has been open about the difficult process, including the “daunting” side effects of chemo…
