The One Where Marianne Experiences a Miracle

You know how Jesus, Mary, and the disciples are always appearing in people's potato chips and guacamole?

I got them all beat.

A giant patch of my lawn turned brown and died over the summer, at which time the Archangel Michael made his presence known:

Never one to appreciate a sign from God, I sprinkled some of that blue grass seed right over my miracle.
 
I am not sure what the Lord is trying to tell me by having an angel visit my lawn.  But when I showed the kids, Joey had a different interpretation:

"It's Blue from Blue's Clues!"

I'm going with the idea that God is rewarding my twisted sense of humor and prodigious ability to grow grass (the lawn kind, not the illegal kind).

Or Jesus may just be a Nickelodeon fan.

You decide.

  1. I see a moose. Does that mean I'm going to hell?

  3. You are so AWESOME! LOL! This is what happens when you put your kids in Catholic School. The Angels turn up to sing your praises. On your lawn. Or when Blue shows up and has a massive leak on your yard...

    Ok, it def looks like an angel. Can't wait to see what it looks like after the first snow, because that grass ain't commin' back in 2013.

  5. I agree with April. It is God praising you with proof if angels since your kids go to Catholic school.

    By the way, this is MOV, but my iPhone thinks I am anonymous

  7. One too many snow-angels in that spot? I totally see both the angel and Blue (ba-bow). I'd go with the holy interpretation though. You may just get some visitors because of it.

  8. Ha-I see it and now you are going to have reporters from your local news all over and pilgrims from all around the globe wanting to touch it! ;-) Actually, good things could be happening at your house, I suggest you cash in on it and sell tickets or something. Didn't the potato chip Jesus face sell on eBay? Just sayin, momma need a new pair of shoes or purse, right?

  11. I see the angel, for sure. Although headless. That gets my vote. Much better than Jesus in the grilled cheese sandwich. :-)
