‘Woe To Those Who Cut Their Grass Before Easter’

Sometimes, when two people are talking and not paying too much attention to what is being said, a subject is stumbled over which grabs the attention for a moment or two–and then leaves, not to be thought of again UNLESS one or both of the two people later revisit it, either in their thoughts or in person.

And so it was that recently an acquaintance was discussing the finer points of LAWN CARE.

(LAWN CARE seems to be one of those subjects about which EVERYONE feels they are an expert, with some tidbit of semi-secret knowledge which only they are aware AND which they pass along for the enlightenment of others–IF they are feeling magnanimous.)

“I just got done mowing the yard. Whew! Glad that’s done for another week!”

“Oh yeah? When do you start cutting your grass?”

“Usually, I start the first week of May. But this year, I started a week early.”

Don’t start cutting your grass too soon!”

“Believe me, I don’t: I put it off as long as I can! Why?”

“Something my grandfather used to say EVERY YEAR. ‘Woe to all those who cut their grass before Easter.’”

“Really? Why’d he say that?”

“I don’t know, but him and my dad used to say it a LOT!”

“Hmmm…that reminds me of something a local farmer says a lot.”

“What’s that?”

“He says ‘Fog in February, frost in May.’”

“Really? What’s that all about?”

“I’m not sure where he got it, but he swears by it. I asked him about once and he told me ‘There’s not much fog around here in February and the last day for frost is supposed to be May 15. If there is fog in February, you know it’s gonna frost AFTER May 15. Better write that down! It’s true: one year there was fog in February and it frosted on May 28th!”

“Huh. I never heard that one before. Fog in February, late frost in May.”

“That’s what he said. Next time I see him, I’ll have to ask him about cutting grass before Easter.”

“Do that! He might have heard something about it. I’d be interested.”

And then, that conversation–like so many others during a normal day–was not thought of again until now.

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
