“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ―Anaïs Nin

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
