Last week was a sad day for a town called West, Texas. We woke up to the news that a fertilizer plant had exploded and many people were dead and injured. While I was rushing around getting everything ready for the day, Mike was praying with the boys at the breakfast table. He told them that a fertilizer plant had exploded and basically destroyed a small town in Texas. Then they spent some time praying for the people of West.
Later that afternoon, I was watching the news with Brody. All of the sudden he goes, "OH!!!! That's a fertilizer plant!!!" I looked at him confused and he said, "This morning Daddy said that a fertilizer plant exploded and destroyed a whole town! I had never heard of a plant that could just explode and do that...and I didn't know what kind of plant a fertilizer plant was. It's not a plant like a flower...it's a plant like a factory building! I get it."
I sure am glad he got that one figured out! Can you imagine the fear of walking through the woods behind our house?! I can hear it now, "Hold on guys! We need to figure out which one of these is a fertilizer plant! We don't want to explode!"
