It's so funny to drive down the road and spot in each yard the septic tank, the only green patch left!
Except these little evil boogers - Mesquite trees! Popping up and thriving everywhere! They're covered with thorns and not easy to pull up! Interestingly, they don't go much further north from this point in Texas. My dad was explaining that they originally were only in Mexico, and the cattle drives brought them north - they have little berries that were eaten by cattle, and thus became "planted" along the trip to the central Texas rail-lines. Interesting, huh?
These poor things are starving. They drank the sugar water from this picture in less than 3 days! We have about 6 -10 out there all day.
I was just have these deep, spiritual musings on the drought, when I read my friend's blog post about the same topic. Go HERE to read it. She and her AMAZING family are missionaries in the Middle East so drought is huge to them - physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
By the way - rain is predicted for Saturday AND Sunday! I am praying that God rain down his love, grace, and mercy on your family as well! My you experience a FLOOD of His presence!
