A few weeks ago, our family went to Virginia to visit my Mom and Dad. One morning during our stay, Dad asked Anthony if he would mow the lawn. Anthony does not mow our lawn because of a tricky hill, so this was not something that he had done before. Anthony agreed reluctantly and looked a little apprehensive. I have to admit that I was, too. We might have a tricky hill, but Dad has a water canal in his backyard. I had visions of Anthony driving the lawn mower over the sea wall and into the bay.It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He causes me to stand on the heights. ~ 2 Samuel 22:33-35

“Did you break it already!” Dad yelled jokingly. He told Anthony to get off and slid himself into the driver’s seat. Dad turned the key and the mower started up with a vroom. Dad climbed off and it stuttered to a stop. Anthony got back in the hot seat. He turned the key again. Nothing.
Dad figured it out. Slender Anthony did not weigh enough to meet the safety requirement that allowed the mower to start. I slid onto the seat. Insultingly, the machine started right up for me. Anthony slid onto the seat as I carefully shifted my behind off. As advertised, the John Deere continued to run.

Update: John Deere has in no way paid me to mention their product. They do not even know who I am!
