In 1930, Pioneer linguist Frank C. Laubach, while serving as a Congregational missionary, wrote in a letter:
‘As one makes new discoveries about his friends by being with them, so one discovers the “individuality” of God if one entertains him continuously.’

I’ve learned a few more things about mulberries
–One website called them blackberry wannabes. I agree but I’m glad they’re not because your jaws don’t get tired chomping down on seeds.
–One way to get mulberries out of trees is to lay out a sheet under the tree and then shake the limbs!
–Most people like eating them just plain
–It’s fun to eat your homemade mulberry jam smack dab in the middle of the winter!
–I grew up thinking they were bad. I had to double check that they were safe to eat. Most of the time when I heard about mulberries I would hear how they were annoying because they stain sidewalks, driveways, cars, etc.
–When you freeze them lay them out on some waxed paper, freeze and then put in a container and refreeze
–Birds like to nest in their branches. They may have a bird brain but they’re smart about raising their little chickies in a home that’s overlooking a storehouse of food! . . . No wonder that bird always gives me an annoying crow when I visit the mulberry tree.
–Silk worms like them
–If you have a dehydrater you can dry your own mulberries. I’ve seen them priced at $15.95 for 16 ounces.
–Heck! Mulberries are considered a superfood and their growing around my neighborhood and people ignore them. They’re even organic!!
–The mulberry leaf can be used for tea.
