I like the small "h" on "him," as I was beginning to worry you only use
faith as a repeater rifle with which to take faithless potshots at someone
you've been given reason to dislike, & using the "I'll pray for you" flame
is something that could only be done by someone who views faith as nothing
but an alternative way of saying "fuck you, you babboon-assed piece of
shit" which I don't mind you saying so often, only sorry to see it wrapped
up in some totally wrongheaded idea of the value of faith.
So what a relief to see that's not what you've been doing at all! Since
it's not a big "H," I now realize that the "him" you had in mind was the
Big Guy, i.e., bus driver Ralph Crampton, & you've not for a minute
been using or abusing actual faith. I loved Ralph too, am only sorry he
didn't live long enough to be the first space-bus driver on the Moon run.

"Of what are you afraid, my child?" inquired the kindly teacher.
"Oh, sir! The flowers, they are wild," replied the timid creature.
: This year I used an American Meadow Midwest Wildflower mix for my
: wildflower boxes. Some of the wildflowers in the box came back from last
: year. Usually I can recognize the typical weed (I.e. a local ugly plant
: that shows up everywhere without being planted). This one plant I was
: thinking of pulling about a month ago got huge broad leaves kind of like
: a big dandelion. I let it grow and then it looked like it might be some
: sort of big poppy. Now it has gotten huge and it doesn't look like a
: poppy and it's taking up a lot of space in the box. I don't mind if it
: turns into something nice but if it's just a nasty common weed I probably
: should get it out of there.
: Does anyone have an idea of what this is?
Looks like the dread Ox-eye Daisy, a part of their wildflower mix that
will just about dominate any planting that goes into year two. A friend
of mine ended up with 1/10th of an acre of this stuff.
If it's in rich soil, it will put on a lot of vegetative growth before it
blooms, much like Cosmos.
