Rain on the Just and the Unjust Alike.

If yesterday's post was earnestness and honesty and just reward, today's is sloth, procrastination, serendipity and unjust reward.

We spent a nauseating amount of money last night at Home Depot to get rid of our nauseating, stained, sun faded, builder original, decade plus old carpeting.

I always wanted to plant bulbs, but am fundamentally too lazy to do so.  So many holes, so much dirt, varying depths and for what?  to be food for all the darn bunnies around here?

Hope springs eternal, even for the lazy and inept.

Leaving Home Depot last night, I saw these All-in-One garden pots, a biodegradable planting pot with all the bulbs contained at the appropriate depth.  Better yet, the pots were marked down from $10 to $3.  Best of all, Chicagoland will be experiencing our last 60 degree day here with a drizzly rain.  By tomorrow, we're headed for a 40 degree temperature plunge.  God, in his infinite mercy and common grace, sent me one last planting day.  This morning, in all of 5 minutes, I got 80 bulbs in the ground.

He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Matthew 5:45
