A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Yard Work – 19 June 2006
By Mary T. Hoffman

I bought another rechargeable battery-operated string trimmer a few days ago. I already had one that I like very much, but needed another so that I can continue to “weed whack” after the first trimmer runs out of power. Since each trimmer runs for 40-45 minutes before the need to recharge, I can double my working time.

Very early this morning I took both trimmers out and got a chance to try my new one. It does an even better job of cutting than the older one, but I’ll be using both from now on.

I’m glad I got my yard work done early today because it got really hot – about 89 degrees Fahrenheit – and then it rained and cooled off to 70 degrees by late afternoon.

Doing yard work gives me a good excuse to spend more time outdoors admiring the wonderful variety of God’s creation!
