TWIN LAKES SHARE & PRAYER
In the Bible it is recorded that God (Yahweh) appeared many times before
the time of Jesus, with Adam and Eve in the Garden, later with Abraham,
speaking to him; it’s recorded in Genesis 21 that He heard the voice of
Abraham’s son Ishmael, that he honored her by sending an angel to
speak to Hagar to comfort her and provide food and water for her and her
son in the desert and promising a future to him. God was with him when
he grew and developed. He spoke to Moses as a friend and protected the
people of Israel as they wandered in the desert; in many other ways God
Then in the New Testament it is said by John, “In the beginning was the
Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. In Him was
life and that life is the light of all mankind.” John goes on to say that “The
Word was made flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen
his glory... full of grace and truth.” It is this Jesus, also called Immanuel
(meaning God with us), that opens the way to us to God. In the Jewish
temple at the time of Christ there was a tremendously thick curtain, a
veil, that separated a section of the temple called “The Holiest of Holies.”
Astonishingly, at the very time that Jesus died on the cross, that veil was
torn right down the middle. This was symbolic of Jesus opening the
way to God for us by voluntarily paying for our sins on the cross... and
overcoming death by being raised to life again! The fact that all of his
disciples were willing to go to their death, most by being killed brutally
without every denying this is a strong testament to the veracity of the
resurrection of Jesus. It is this very thing that we celebrate from Good
Friday to Easter, this Immanuel who brings new life and hope to those
who humble themselves to receive Him.
The Share and Prayer group will be meeting alternate Tuesday evenings
at 6:45 and beginning April 6 th , in person again! April 6 th and 20 th , May 4 th
and 18 th are the getting-together times for these two months. We hang
out and chat, gather around the Word and grow in faith and friendship
together. Any honest seeker and resident of Twin Lakes is welcome to
join in. Contact Patty Napp at Patricia.email@example.com or Carol
Monahan at 713-305-9809.

10 TIPS FOR A CLEANER REFRIGERATOR
1. Create a homemade all-purpose cleaner by combining the following in a
gallon of hot water: 1 cup clear ammonia, ½-cup vinegar and ¼-cup baking
soda. Pour into a spray bottle or use from a bowl with a sponge. This norinse
formula is a degreaser that prevents mold and mildew. Wipe down the
entire refrigerator with this solution, including the drawers and shelves.
2. To prevent grease and odor buildup on top of the refrigerator after
you’ve cleaned it, just buff some paste wax into the surface.
3. Use toothpaste to remove tough stains. It contains a gentle abrasive
and has a pleasant odor.
4. To get those dust bunnies out from under the refrigerator, remove the
grill and run a yardstick covered with a pair of pantyhose underneath.
Also check the pan of water under the unit, since it can hold unpleasantsmelling
5. To combat household odors, fill a clean old sock with activated charcoal
from an aquarium store, tie a knot in the top and place it in the back of
the refrigerator. This will last a month or two, depending on the size of
your refrigerator and how heavily you use it.
6. For a faster fix for odors, sprinkle vanilla extract on some cotton balls,
place in a shallow dish and put in the refrigerator. Orange extract also
7. Eliminate lingering odors in your vegetable bins by putting a crumpled
piece of a brown paper grocery bag inside and leaving it for 48 hours. The
paper will absorb the odor.
8. Check for adequate tightness of the insulating seam around the door
by placing a lighted flashlight inside the refrigerator and closing the door.
Turn off the lights in the room (this should be done at night) and see if
any light escapes from the seams. This will help you pinpoint any leaks.
9. If you don’t keep your refrigerator full, fill a large bottle (at least a gallon)
with water and leave it in the refrigerator. It helps keep the refrigerator
cool and running efficiently.
10. Keep your refrigerator at 37 degrees. Source: www.hgtv.com

We have done everything we can to try and reopen our doors, including
becoming the first theater in the country to install hospital grade UV
lights in our air filtration system. We even offered a safe and distanced
indoor concert as well as an indoor offering from our educational touring
unit this past fall. And when those projects proved financially challenging
and COVID numbers spiked again, we created “Light Up the Lot” and
moved all our programming outdoors.
We’ve never given up. We never will give up. But due to circumstances
beyond our control, we find ourselves needing to pivot once more.

April Gardening Tips
Mulch - If possible, buy Bagged Mulch. Bagging helps eliminate a great
many pests that die from various causes while in the bag. When you buy
‘loose’ mulch that is trucked to your home, you are also buying ants,
roaches, termites, etc…” Spend a little more on bagged material and save
lots of future pest problems. Keep your mulch at least 4” - 6” below the top
of your homes exposed foundation edge/side. This will aid in minimizing
pests in your home and allow for quick and accurate termite inspections.
Shrubs, Flowers and ground covers - Trim all shrubs/plants at least 12” -
18” back from your home. Do your best to create a plant free zone that is
18” - 24” wide around your home. The exception is your lawn - it can grow
up next to the slab as long as you keep it 4” - 6” below the top of the slab.
The most conducive to termite infestation are groundcover plantings,
growing high against your homes exterior or (especially) ivy that grows
on your walls.
Trees - Spray your trees at least twice annually. The spring spray
eliminates overwintering pests and fungi while preparing trees to resist
the pest onslaught of summer with residual pesticides. The fall spray also
kills pests from the summer, prevents most fungi from occurring over the
winter and puts your valuable asset off to a healthy winter’s dormancy.
Lawn - Spring is the perfect time to do a fungicide treatment to stop
brown patch in its tracks along with other fungi. If your lawn is thin and
weak in some areas, here are some important fundamentals: a) lawn
aeration” b) fertilization” c) weed control.
Most important is proper watering:
• Water once per week (unless you get a 1/2” rain or more - then do not
• Water heavily (1” - 2”) for total lawn coverage.
• In severe drought, water every 5th day.
• Water from 5 AM to 7 AM in the morning - NOT AT NIGHT.
• A heavy deep weekly watering makes the turf grow deeper, stronger
and more drought resistant roots.
• Less watering also saves you money!!

TAX TIP FOR APRIL
As I write this, the American Rescue Plan Act (HR 1319)
is expected to be signed into law soon. There are
provisions in this bill that affect 2020 taxes retroactively.
For example, up to $10,200 of unemployment benefits
(normally fully taxable) can be excluded if you qualify.
If you have not filed your 2020 return yet, hold off! There
may be a change in the law that affects you.
Professional assistance with your taxes can save you money.

WHEN IS EARTH DAY?
This observance always falls on April 22 nd . On Earth Day, enjoy the tonic
of fresh air, contact with the soil and companionship with nature! Walk
through the woods in search of emerging wildflowers and green moss.
Go outside, no matter what the weather!
Ever wondered how Earth Day started? This observance arose from an
interest in gathering national support for environmental issues. In 1970,
San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord
Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration.
McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose
April 22 nd . Millions of people participated and today Earth Day continues
to be widely celebrated with events on both dates.
The most common practice of celebration is to plant new trees for Earth
Day. Other Earth Day activities and ideas are: Plant wildflowers, Go
native! Plants thrive when they’re natural to your area, bring nature into
the garden with plants that attract butterflies, try an organic vegetable
garden and conserve water.
