Yesterday we had a guy, David, cut our grass. It was a weird feeling, because we're pretty self-sufficient, especially when it comes to paying someone for a service we're perfectly capable of doing ourselves. But, our lawnmower is on the blink, and the back yard was pretty scary. David took a weed eater to it, and had it smooth as a golf course in...well, it took awhile. He also trimmed the tops of our bushes where I can't reach. Now our yard looks very nice. Hopefully the mower will be out of the shop in time for the next trim.
An interesting note: before David left, he asked if he could pray for us. I thought that was pretty neat.
We passed his name on to neighbors, so I hope we can get a little more business coming his way. He lives a couple of blocks over, and just walks around with his tools in his hand, looking for a yard with someone he can talk to (I happened to be outside attacking the bushes). He seems happy to do labor, and thanked God in his prayer for the joy of work. That's a good thought. On that note, I guess I should get back to my own work, eh?
Hippotherapy for James - Contrary to popular belief, "hippotherapy" is therapy using horses, not hippos. James LOVES horses, so I was excited to start hippotherapy at Hope Landing ...
