Adam is in the process of turing an ugly gravel pit in our back yard into grass.
I would have just spent the money, bought some sod and called it good. But not my man.
First, because he is a save-a-buck-chuck.
Second, because I think he likes the process.
So, for a few weeks now he has been working in the yard: ripping up weeds, shoveling pile after pile of gravel, layering seed and top soil, and watering.
…oh the watering.
And then, this morning:
Sometimes change doesn’t happen over night. Sometimes it takes work,
Sometimes it takes patience.
It’s can’t always be a quick fix.
But, more often then not, the pay off is that much sweeter.
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
