Hold Outs

We are the "hold outs"!
Determined to control the weeds while all around us are giving in.
It feels like a losing battle sometimes, but that's what we do.
On my walk to mail some letters at our small town post office,
I cut through the bank's parking lot and noticed the dandelion in the mulch.
Struck by its beauty, I stopped to take a picture.
But no matter HOW intriguing its appearance,
I won't be lured into tolerating it in our lawn.
We will continue to be diligent and ruthless in our efforts.
Kind of reminds me of this challenge:
"For the free gift of eternal salvation is now being offered to everyone;
and along with this gift comes the realization 
that God wants us to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures 
and to live good, God-fearing lives day after day  
looking forward to that wonderful time we’ve been expecting,
when his glory shall be seen—the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ."
Titus 2:11-13 TLB 
Yes, I'm holding out by His grace and in His power.
Thanks be to God who gives the victory.

    We can't get rid of the dandelions here in the country. There is just no way.
