Tonight we went to a family gathering
in a stunningly beautiful backyard
complete with a gorgeous array of flowers,
a gurgling waterfall,
and gardens and trellises everywhere.
Sam and I were in dreamland.
The older I get, the less appealing man-made creations come
and the more I feel joy in connecting with God's creations.
I have begun to LOVE yardwork and I get so much satisfaction from working in our yard...
even though it's just a rental and the yard is pretty simple.
We feel that it's particularly important to teach our boys to work in nature.
We are so excited to create our own backyard piece of heaven on Earth.
Watching our little ones frolic amidst the beauty tonight only fueled the fire.
