I found these gourds at the grocery store a couple months ago, and was astounded by them. Why, they were swans! I could even perhaps put on my own presentation of Swan Lake with them! Well, O.K., maybe I was a bit TOO excited. But when the lady who works in the produce section came over and I showed her what I saw, she got excited and ordered more! There are over 700 species of gourds, and I believe these are the ones called Goose Gourds, because of their long necks. I believe this type is not eaten, but used for decoration. There are no two alike, just like people!
"The sacred writings contain preliminary reports by the prophets on God's Son... his unique identity as Son of God was shown by the Spirit when Jesus was raised from the dead, setting him apart as the Messiah, our Master. Through him we received both the generous gift of his life and the urgent task of passing it on to others who receive it by entering into obedient trust in Jesus. You are who you are through this gift and call of Jesus Christ!"
