Many Hands Make Light Work!
This is an old fashioned proverb, and it is very true! Our dear children have experienced this first hand in the last two weekends.
Last Saturday, the 20th, Glenn and the kids spent hours and hours raking the yard. The kids worked so hard and without complaint! I think the garden tractor and rides on that and driving that helped the matter!
"And whatever you say, or whatever you do, do everything in the name of the Lord, and not for people." Colossians 3:17
"Honor your father and mother, this is the first commandment with promise, that your days may be long and it may be well with you."
Glenn had an opportunity to do just that yesterday with his Dad, "Grampa Jon". Grampa needed to make a trip up to Vermont to get a load of hay with his hay wagon. He sells hay in NH as part of his work. So Glenn loaded up our van with all of the kids and they followed Grampa the 2.5 hours up to Vermont and then worked as a team to load 268 bales of hay onto Grampa's hay trailer. Glenn said that the kids all worked super hard, and were such a great testimony. The bales were heavy, and it was a lot of work, but they all worked together and had it done in no time. The reward from Grampa...A trip to his favorite diner on the way home for some munchies! The heavenly reward...."Priceless"!!
Everyone got home last night, tired, but excited about a job well done!
