Why Did God Make Fleas?!

When I get to heaven, I have many questions to ask God.  One of them being, “What’s up with the fleas?!”  (Of course, I know, that when I get to heaven, I will no longer care about the flea!”

My point, the fleas are driving me nuts, but that has nothing to do with the cuteness of my boy that I just had to share!

Anyway, I got some flea stuff for the yard.

Have to get as man leaves up as possible.  Um, hello.  Have you SEEN my yard!?!

Chris is studying for exams this week, so out I go . . . blower in hand to try and conquer this leaf filled yard.

I told Christopher, “Christopher, I’ll give you a penny for every stick you pick up!”  Yes, I am cheap; but I’m poor so I have to be! lol!  He gets excited cause there are LOTS of sticks.

A few minutes later, this cute little boy walks up to me, grinnin’ from ear to ear.

He then raises his hands in the air and says, “Mommy, you know; a LOT of those sticks have limbs on them . . . .”  Me, “Yeah, I know.”  Christopher, “Well, you know, I could get a LOT more pennies if I break all those limbs off!” Christopher, “BIG GRIN.”

I just love him 🙂

  1. Your son is so cute! Last year we had a very very wet spring and that resulted in a huge outbreak of fleas in this area. In fact the vet told me that everyone who came in with an animal had the same complaint. I went out to the nursery and got about three bags of diotamaceous earth and sprinkled it all over my yard. It's all natural butI needed to wear a mask anyway. This year will be the test…I hope and pray that there are no more because it is maddening! Good luck! Blessings, Joanne


  2. Joanne, PLEASE let me know how the diotamaceous earth works for you! I used it in the house and can't say I saw any improvement. BUT, I might not have applied enough ? We are still fostering puppies and can't seem to get ahead of the outbreak of fleas! Nothing worse than itching all over! Ick! Have a wonderful day!


  3. Why did God make fleas??? Have you ever read Corrie Ten Boom's The Hiding Place? If not you have to because it is an excellent book (my favorite after the Bible)you will love it I promise and because it answered the question why did God make fleas in a way you will never forget using Philippians 4:4-7 :)Melody


  4. Melody, I had not heard of her story until posting this! You are the third person to tell me of this amazing woman! I can not wait to read about her life! I have tried the diotamaceous earth but didn't see great results; however, I did not reapply it often.
