Are you known by your occupation like "John, the doctor.", or "Mary, the teacher? We once had a Low Power television station; and my husband quickly became "Norm, the TV man!"
Today my mother-in-law, which I prefer to think of as my"mother-in-love", is "Our gourd lady!"For many years she has often raised acres of gourds for martin bird houses and crafts. For her it has been a labor of love! She also operates a real estate business; but she is "the gourd lady!"
As I read the scriptures it is interesting to see how often gourds are found there. Do you remember Jonah and his shade vine?(Jonah 4:6) Gourds were even displayed in the ornate designs in the temple.(I Kings 6:18 Hollman). Another place is found in (II Kings 4:39-41). Gourds look like squash growing on the vine.
Isn't it nice to know that work can be so enjoyable that it is almost like a favorite hobby, that you are paid to do! What ever we do, we each can do our best. (I Corinthians 10:31). Maybe one day I will be known as "The writer lady!"
