The End of the Fourth Year

Then Jesus told them a story: "A man had a bush planted in his front yard. He came to it expecting to find fruit, but there weren't any. He said to his gardener, "What's going on here? For three years now I've come to this bush expecting fruit and not one have I found. Chop it down! Why waste good ground with it any longer?'

"The gardener said, "Let's give it another year. I'll dig around it and fertilize, and maybe it will produce next year; if it doesn't, then chop it down.'"
Luke 13:6-9

The Gospel Reading appointed for this day.

You are kidding me. That is more perfect than seems plausible. Well, it sure is the end of the 4th year here. Here I still am, holding...my...breath... (and praying!!)
