(A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS)

Living life, I took many things for granted. Sitting on a concrete bench, pondering the 'meaning of life' while viewing a favorite tree, another vision suddenly appeared. I could 'see' that tree just a few years ago, when it was barely more than a twig stuck in the ground. Sure, it bore a couple sap-slurping leaves.
Now as I sit here, that Wild Tamarind (below) is my shade. It was only supposed to grow 5-6 feet in height.
These banana plants (below) are missing one pleasure of life--a mate. They will not produce fruit until we find them a wife—and I don't know how to do that. Our farm grew corn and tomatoes, not bananas, which make love on moonlit nights. So, “Yes...we have no bananas...” is my song today.
A short time ago, I shot this, called it “The Trumpet Shall Sound”. Then came a drought followed months later by a storm. Finally I cut the dead pieces away, said, “R.I.P.” (Requiescat in Pace).
Now, I sit here and observe (below) that if God brought this dead tree back to life, what more must He have in store for any of us Peeps who have died, either physically, or spiritually
And the fern (below) was 10 years ago, a baby in a pot on our lanai. When it finally threatened the screening we stuck it in that sand we Florida Peeps call earth.
Yes, I've taken many thing for granted. Oh, did I give credit to Anna, my wife? She (Prayer Girl) did some of the work and all the praying, for our yard. Other than that, Peeps, Love, and PEACE!
