And for 16 years I have kept a look out for a plant called Mormon Tea that grows wild in the SW America area.
I thought this would be a cool thing to have.
(I have a thing for plants, they are my love, and my addiction.)
This month we started staying in an area of our state of Texas where this plant grows well (according to the web).
I have been going for morning walks on this large ranch with my pooches.
(this is a gas well ranch, and has so many wonderful coliche roads we use)
I was talking to God, soaking up his wonders, and I asked if it was local please bring me to it.
Later that same day, hubs and I were coming back from an errand in town and he pulls over and wants to show me a plant he thought was cool.
He never does this sort of thing.
Usually when I mention plants he glazes over and just nods.
I had not told him about the plant or the prayer.
He also doesn't stop to "waste time" when he is on the clock.
I knew when we pulled over it was my plant.
I can not explain how special it made me feel that God spoke to me through my hubby.
I have a friend, a dear dear friend, who God uses me to answer her prayers all the time.
Like, a WHOLE lot.
When it happens, I first think, "YEAH I LISTENED!!"
Then I think, "WOW, God really loves you.
And, of course, I know he loves me the same.
AND God speaks to me through others...
But not like this.

"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen -- even the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea that pass through the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth!" Psa 8:3-9
~God bless you~
