I remember when I was a very young Christian getting discouraged about a matter within our church family. I went to the pastor’s office and talked with him a good while about the incident and asked for prayer and instruction. Because my husband and I worked on the church staff, Dr. Hutson was not only my spiritual leader, but my employer. My needs concerned him and he wanted to help. He wisely gave me sage advice that I have tried to remember since that time.

As you drive around Beaumont and Houston, look for the use of the striking celosia plant. It is a favorite of landscape architects because of its bombshell colors and ease of care. They often use it like a carpet in mass plantings across great swaths of median strips and entries into shopping areas. You can take advantage of celosia’s good looks in your own yard.

Q. I am moving out of my apartment. I know a landlord cannot deduct from a security deposit for “normal wear and tear.” What is normal wear and tear? Does the statute have a definition?
