Her thoughts were filled with inquiries that dried up all her juices. Probably she’s overthinking. But she couldn’t help but think that if people were as eager as they have been in looking for that minute Celosia flower farm and in becoming responsible stewards of God’s creation, we could have lessen the destruction, disasters and disruptions we were experiencing right now.
