Just So You'll know....

I may be on summer vacation.  I may or may not have spent a day or two playing video games.  I have read a bunch of books.  

But I do work really, really hard.  Sometimes.  

My husband is not only a Music Pastor but also the Senior adult Pastor.  For some reason he loves to have a cookout in the summer with the senior adults when it is 100+ degrees for days on end.  

When it's hot, I just want the yard to die.  I don't want to work outside.  But the week before the cookout I am shamed into it.  

This is the result of my labor.  My selflessness.  My giving to his ministry.  

Weeds pulled (mostly).

Flowers groomed.  (Kind of)

Grass--well, lets just call it mowed and ignore the weeds and mole and gopher tunnels, K?

Me dirty and sweaty (thoroughly)

The things I do for my man....

And did I mention I have a tramp stamp sunburn????  (But I didn't take a picture.  You're welcome!)

(seriously, I love having the senior adults over.  I am so thankful that is one of his areas of ministry--They are fun and fabulous!)

I love getting that filthy! It always means I accomplished something big!

Tramp stamp sunburns are the worst.

I can't remember the last time I was that dirty. It was probably in the 5th grade...
Kudos on the cookout! It's awesome that you guys do that.

I don't think I've ever had that much dirt on me! But I do NO yard work! Lol

One Last Thought.......

Pleasant words are a honeycomb;
sweet to the soul and healing to the body.
