On a Divine Spring: The earth of existence moved and the material world was put in motion

The original feed store and garden supply business, which was about 2,400 square feet, was owned and run by the Stroh family for more than six decades. The store has been a favorite of Gig Harbor gardeners and horse lovers for generations.
The Stroh family sold the business to Wilco last year, but still owns the land. Wilco will be the sole, long-term tenant of the property.
Waxing poetic about the place you've gotten your garden straw for many years may be a little over the top, but the sun is shining today (and I hope tomorrow, too, for the devotional before the Invaders practice), and tomorrow is the first day of  Spring. So here is the news: Stroh's in Gig Harbor is becoming a Wilco store. 
Wilco is the Northwest's largest and most sophisticated Ag Supply cooperative providing Agronomy, Petroleum, and Retail Store services
The breeze of the divine spring blew, and the fruitful winds of infinite generosity passed by from the point of favor. The brilliant morning dawned and the glad-tidings of the greatest gift were announced. The divine spring appeared throughout the contingent world. The earth of existence moved and the material world was put in motion. The barren and dried up soil turned into an eternal garden, and the inanimate earth was endowed with eternal life. The flowers and myrtles of knowledge grew, and the fresh herbage of the knowledge of God flourished. The material world showed forth the bounties of the Merciful, and the visible world displayed the scene of the invisible world. The call of God was raised, the divine banquet celebrated, the cup of the Testament was circulated and the universal acclamation was uttered!
Happy Naw-Ruz, friends. And happy gardening. -gw
