One of my joys
One of the things that brings me joy in my life right now is to work along side my boys. When God gifted me with three boys, I remember thinking what it would be like to work with them. I thought to myself, just think about all of the things we could get done when we are working together. When we began to work together years ago, when it was just Daddy working and the boys happily "helping out," that time seemed a long way off. Then we really began to get some stuff done as the boys became great runners and really dug in as helpers. Now though, the boys are coming into their own. It is exciting and fun to watch. It is great to hear them pray at the end of the night, "Thank you God that we were able to get some work done today."
This is not a completely rosy picture. There are still plenty of moans and groans as I announce the project list for the evening or weekend. At the beginning, no one is volunteering or running up to get their work clothes on. But once we put some good music on and the project gets started, everyone gets on board.
Last night we worked on painting the chicken barn. The boys dug in and we got a lot done. I love working with these guys.
