What a Blessing

Our lawn...looked just awful. Because of all the rain and everything it really really needs to be mowed every week. Well, this past weekend it did not get done and I was having some friends over in the morning...and here I have this overgrown grass!! It would not have looked so bad except, everyone else mowed their lawn this week which made ours stand out.... It was really stressing me out as I am worried about our testimony and well, I was just embarrassed of it ok :)! I was going to do it myself, but Brian told me that the mower needed oil and that would mean I would have to find out what kind of oil, drag the kids in the store to get it ...blah blah..you know. Anyway, I really just quickly prayed about it...I thought well, my hands are kind of tied about it...so "Lord, please let there be a way to get this lawn mowed" Do you know that Brian called about an hour later and said he was going to come home for a few hours!! Apparently their schedule for school got glitchy today and he was all caught up on his assignments so he was going to come home...and yes, he would love to get the lawn mowed. So, I weed whacked and he mowed...and it was an enjoyable few hours...even if spent doing yard work. Amen! What a blessing and tremendous affirmation that the Lord cares about the little things that stress us :)

Heather, hearing you praise the Lord for the opportunity to weed whack only affirms what a sweetheart you are. LOL

Ditto what happymama said. You are great. I'm glad your lawm looks better, and it no longer has to weigh on your mind.

Love, Melissa
