The Fruit of the Spirit - JOY
- The gardener who labors and toils for hours in the dirt and hot sun, who gets blisters on his hands and sunburn on his skin – yet he still finds joy knowing that his work will produce fruit and vegetables and flowers, which makes all the effort worthwhile.
- The runner who struggles to finish a run along the trail, who comes home completely beat and exhausted – yet she finds joy in knowing how far she has come in her fitness level and what great things her exercise is doing for her health.
- The mother in labor – who goes through so much pain and effort, willingly, because she knows that when it’s over, she will have a beautiful baby to hold.
Hi there! My name is Dana and I live in West Michigan with my husband, Tom and our dog Happy Gilmore. I created this space as a place to share the things I learn along this journey I call life. I work in marketing and I'm a sort of Jane of All Trades, interested in all things nature, gardening, cooking, exploring and learning new things. This blog is a conglomeration of my interests, hobbies, life and life lessons. Thanks for stopping by!
