Strength for Today

We hope that this art video and Joshua 1:9 will remind us to stay strong and courageous no matter what we are going through during this time.

Joshua 1 New International Version (NIV)

Joshua Installed as Leader

After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.

“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips;meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

How to look after a Peperomia Polybotyra

We got to buy our very first peperomia plant in Australia last year. And we’re so glad that it has thrived very well.

So, how did we do it? A little bit of research , personal experience and TLC ( tender love and care) did the trick. Peperomias are not too needy as well as long as you get the most important care tips right. Here are some of it.

  1. Use a not too large pot with drainage.

2. Place it in an area with a bright to medium light away from direct sun exposure. We placed ours next to a window with a semi-transparent curtain. I love the way they turn their leaves towards the window. Kris and I takes turn to rotate them every now and then. Peperomias like warm and humid temperatures. Less light exposure will lead to leaves falling off and too much sun exposure will cause it’s leaves to turn pale and yellowish.

3. Leave the soil to dry completely before watering as the peperomia leaves are thick which can store water. I usually just stick about an inch of my finger in the soil to check it’s moisture and water if it’s dry. We water our Peperomia about just twice a week but may be even less during winter. Avoid too much watering as it may cause it’s root to rot and eventually grow fungus.

4. Fertilise once a month or even every 2 months. They are the kind of plant that does not really need it though.

They grow slowly so there’s no need to repot not until the roots are sticking out from the bottom of the pot.

5. Regular misting and wiping of it’s leaves reduces bugs infestation and cleans the leaves from dusts hence promoting photosynthesis. Your peperomia will love you for this!
