Having Some "Fun"

This past Sunday, I was able to do something that I have not done in the past few months, and I really enjoyed it!

After small group, it was about 6:30ish when we arrived home, and I felt really inspired to weed! Brady had to be fed and put to bed, so I asked my DH if he would mind taking care of that, so that I could go and weed. He was very supportive of me (he does not like to weed at all), and off I went!

I was feeling really good, and I enjoyed the hour and a half of being in the outdoors with God and His creation. The ground was still somewhat moist, so weeding was not too hard. Weeding is not normally something that I would enjoy doing, but it was different this time. I was enjoying making our property, that God blessed us with, look a little nicer. I enjoyed smelling the outdoors while I prodded those little weeds out, and I thanked the Lord for this land that He gave to us. It was also nice to use the new kneeler/seat that Dawson bought for me last summer - the cushion on it is really nice! (thanks hunny!)

There is still more weeding to do - and I don't really look forward to the weeding necessarily, but I do look forward to some alone time with God in the outdoors. It was really nice to complete something and to see that it will stay that way for a little while (laundry and dishes are not "done" for long!). I had a sense of accomplishment, and that is something that I really needed to feel. God is so faithful to meet us right where we are, and I thank him for the renewed strength that He gave to me.

I feel the same. I don't really enjoy weeding, but after it is done you really do feel like you accomplished something. Unlike dishes and laundry. Those are never done. I think it also helps that weeding only needs done a couple months out of the year and not daily ALL year.

And it's nice that you still can bend over and work - won't be long now that this will be a distant memory :) Glad to hear you got to get out and enjoy the alone time! How's the pregnancy progressing??

:) Isn't it wonderful the way He calls us out to be with Him? (smiling sigh) I bet the flowers, grass and trees felt His presence too.
