What the cutting locust
left,
the swarming locust
has eaten....
And
what the hopping locust
left,
the destroying locust
has eaten.
[Joel 1:4]
*********************
"My hibiscus
has died,
LORD."

"It isn't dead,
My child."

"Yeah.
It IS.....,
LORD."

"No,
My child."

"It's all.... STICKS."

[NOD.]

"It was so beautiful
last summer...."

"Yes,
My child."

"Big orange-pink flowers...
they looked like
the sunrise....
with huge green leaves."

[SILENCE.]

"It grew all the way to
the roof of my house."

"I know,
Mein kinder."

"I even had a
nickname for it:
'Jack in the Beanstalk'!"

[CHUCKLE.]

"It was really beautiful;
everybody said so."

"Yes,
child."

"Then the frost came.
Really unusual,
for San Antonio."

[NOD.]

"And.....
it died."

"No,
My child."

"All the leaves are gone,
and the flowers...
and, it's all just a bunch'a
sticks,
now."

"Now,
child.
Yes."

"Yeah.
It's so sad.... looking.
It's all just a bunch of sticks,
now. I was going to have my
lawn guy just cut it down."

"I know,
My child."

"Then...
somebody told me to just let
it be,
for awhile....
...that it might
bloom,
again."

[NOD.]

"I don't think so,
LORD.
It's all so.... DEAD."

"That is what you
think,
My child."

"The day of the locust...came."

"Yes,
child."

"All... sad.
All... dead."

"It seems so,
now,
My child."

"It IS so,
LORD!
It IS...so!
It's dead!
It's....all..DEAD!"

"I know what
you see,
Mein kinder.
But,
remember,
child."

"What,
LORD?"

"I
AM
the
Resurrection
and
the
Life."
***********************
Thus
says
the
Lord God
to
these
bones:
Behold,
I will cause
breath
to
enter you,
and
you
shall
live.
[Ezekiel 37:5]
