I just met the gardener

I heard the doorbell ring this morning. It was the neighbor complaining about Grace Community cardboard boxes in the trash room. Thus, I had to go downstairs to break down boxes.

I met the gardener Ramiro. We were talking about working. “God sees your work,” I said. He asked if I was a Christian, and he said he is pastor’s assistant at a Christian church. We chatted about doing your best and working “heartily as to the Lord” (Col 3:23).

So what was seemingly a bothersome situation was actually a cool time of encouragement.
