Our yard is still in kinda a mess since the Valentine’s Day tornados. It is really just a collection of Saint Augustine grass, wildflowers, and weeds. There is no need to do anything to it. We just mow the weeds and try not to mow the wildflowers.
2. "Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there."~Thomas Fuller What does this quote mean to you?
Out here in Gulf Coast Texas, crops grow year round. Sometimes things will
start growing in a
field after it has been plowed but before it has been sown. The farmers call those things
volunteers. Sometimes there will be
volunteers of several varieties in one field.

For this quote, I would think he was talking about unintended consequences. Sometimes our actions have outcomes we did not know were possible. Like an act of kindness that inspires someone else to pay it forward.

Awesome power. Our God is an Awesome God. He plays by His rules, so we cannot completely understand His actions.
God sent His only Son to die the most painful death every devised by man, just to save us from our sins. That is Awesome.
4. If we were chatting in person, how would I know if you were nervous?
It is not likely that I would be nervous just because we were talking. Usually when I get nervous, I talk faster or I am very quiet while I ponder all the things that could happen.
5. Do you like the color yellow? Would I find any in your home or wardrobe? Daffodils, tulips, roses, sunflowers, day lily, black eyed Susan...which yellow bloom on this list is your favorite?
I like the color yellow. It is a happy, sunny color. There probably is something around here somewhere that is yellow. Our youngest son, the Marine, loves bright yellow. His towels here at the house are yellow. Each person has their own color towels so they know whose is what.
I like sunflowers and the Black-Eyed Suzannes. I also like yellow marigolds. They help keep some insects away.
As far as my wardrobe is concerned, no yellow except for my Falling Star socks they gave me at the hospital when I had my strokes. The hospital color-codes their patients. If you are wearing yellow and try to walk by yourself, the hospital staff calls your Marine son who orders you to stay in bed.
6. Flip flops or bare feet?
Neither. I am a diabetic. I had my big toe amputated so I might could wear one flip flop, but not both. I cannot feel my feet, so walking bare footed is no longer a good idea
7. Tell us about any Easter plans, celebrations, or traditions you'll carry out this month.
We don’t really have any Easter traditions here. We pray and recognize the sacrifice that Jesus paid for us. Back in the day, we would have an Easter ham. There are just two of us at home now. Our girls are hours away and our sons are days away, so it is not possible for our family to get together, except via Skype every blue moon.
Two people trying to eat a traditional ham is just too much.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
This past weekend we were able to spend a little time with our oldest daughter. That was nice. The A/C in the car is broken, so trips out are limited. We did drive up to Brenham, Texas, and take some great wildflower pictures. Spring is the best time to live in Texas.
Have a great week, y’all.
