Just wanted to say an extra thank you for coordinating the Thousand Hearts clean up for my yard.
It was a lovely experience of God's abundant love. My yard hasn't looked this good in a long time.
I loved the variety of the ages of the folks who came. I think there were 8 people who came Jeff, his Dad and his son, and John, the the YWAM family. Their little ones pulled the weeds out between the patio blocks by my garage door in the back. I offered them the use of part of the garden space that I don't use. They took my number so we'll see how that works out Bob and MaryEllen used half of it last year. Jeff and John even transplanted a volunteer flowering crab tree that never stood straight because it needed to lean in order to get the sun. All in all it was an experience beyond what I might have imagined. When I told a friend about it this morning she mentioned how her daughter's school had offered to clean up her yard, but the kids out numbered the adults and she gave them all cookies and milk. She ended up with a bigger mess than she had before they started!! She is a widow and we always discuss whether or not we are ready to move to a smaller space. I said after yesterday's experience I am certainly not ready to consider moving for quite a while.
THANKS AGAIN FOR BEING SUCH A WONDERFUL CHANNEL OF GOD'S LOVE HERE IN OUR LOVELY LITTLE PART OF GOD'S CREATION.
