Gardening was always a hobby of theirs. “I’ve been really successful in growing, and a buddy of mine from high school that was in winemaking in New York said that I should put in grapevines, so I put in 100 of them and they just grew like wildfire,” Trig says.

John 2:1-12 Washing Water to Wedding Wine

“On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee.” Mary, the mother of Jesus, is there along with her Son and His new disciples. On the third day – the creative day in which the Word called forth grapes from the earth.
