  • Never try attacking the mountain alone

    Several weeks ago I went mountain climbing.
    Not really, but I did volunteer to take part in my church’s Project Beautiful work day.
    One of our mission goals is to bring beauty to our community in small ways, be it picking up trash, pulling weeds or painting houses.
    I can’t remember the last time I volunteered to do anything involving manual labor, especially in the hot humidity where I might get sweaty and/or dirty. If it might mess my hair, I tend to avoid it.
