Men are that they might have joy!

My husband and I said “no” to spring basketball. #3 is quite good but we needed to reclaim our Saturdays. For the past 5 weeks I have been outside, every Saturday from dawn to dusk, working in/on our yard. We are some of the few Californians who do all our own yard work, instead of hiring out.

My mom began cross-stitching during a very busy time in her life. I remember her telling me that she loved creating something that didn’t get undone. She would stitch something beautiful and could frame it and hang it up and enjoy her accomplishment. 

This is how I feel about my yard. I can put in some hard work and enjoy beholding it every time I look out my window or go outside.

Men are that they might have joy. What brings you joy?
