Did you know that Adam was given the job of tilling the ground BEFORE he sinned and disobeyed God? And to think that even Paradise required work! (Genesis 2:15) Or, to put it another way, God knows that it would not be a very good paradise if there was nothing to work at. :) How wonderful that he includes us in the job!
I got to plant my Lilac bush yesterday. *excited jumping up and down* Of course, there are already lots of lilacs in my neighbourhood, but I can’t pick those blooms in the Spring.
That brings the move-in jobs down to only one or two now. Since I do my sewing by hand, Sam’s curtains will keep me busy during cold, watching-tv sort of nights. The other “job” is to buy myself a couple of new bathing suits. Yes, it’s a job, and yes, it has to do with our new home. Since we now have a hot tub. There are lots of things I could use for a bathing suit, but who wants two pieces when you’re taking them on and off every night; and flowing tops would be way too much dripping. Onesies work, only when there are no visitors. And they’re just as hard to find as one-piece bathing suits, these days!
What’s your favourite work to do? I like sweeping… there’s such a feeling of satisfaction to collect up all that dirt and get rid of it, and then to see the nice clean floor. Weird eh? But one of my favourite jobs-to-be-like-my-Creator-God, is to crochet–like the purse I’m almost finished working!
