Miracles in Miami
3) I Burnt the Lawn
After clearing everything used for cooking rice, I noticed a burnt patch of lawn about one square foot. It was bare, I could see the ground. Oh, no, what shall I do? Of course, what do you expect when you build fire right on the grass? I have to fix this before the landlord comes back.
Not knowing what to do, I drove my car to the university just to see what was going on.
The crew from the Building and Grounds Department was working on the grounds. I wasn’t expecting anybody to be working. I saw squares of sod piled on top of each other ready for planting. From my estimation, one square was the right size to cover the burnt area. I asked the worker if I could have one small patch of grass. He said, “yes.” I thanked him and drove home with one square patch of grass.
Wow! That patch of grass was the exact size of the burnt area, as though it was custom cut. I placed the new grass on top of the bare soil. I could not even distinguish the original lawn from the patch. The patch blended in perfectly with the lawn as though nothing disastrous really happened.
I thanked my lucky stars for delivering me a miracle!
