I’ve been away from my blog for quite some time!
Things have been going rather differently than expected at this time of year,
but I am thankful for everything the Lord brings our way.
It is always a sign of His Love and Presence in us,
and always a way of drawing us closer to Himself;
if we allow it to be!
Lately, we’ve taken on a job for a city a county over from us.
Its a construction job (of course!) and we’ve been working there about a
We leave early (as in the picture above; we try to leave out by 8am).
And we get home around 6pm or later.
It is interesting – I may repeat, very interesting – to be from the
country and to work in the city;
its like entering another world! 🙂
Here is the house we’re working on.
The biggest jobs involved are taking out these sliding doors the
former owners had installed everywhere,
and closing them in/replacing them.
And like from this…
This will get sheetrock over it and painted (the whole room will be painted)
before we are through.
Painting is a big part of the job.
We’ve been using only rollers and brushes.
And then a lot of minor jobs…like replacing bathroom vanities;
retexturing ceilings, mudding cracks and holes in the walls.
Taking up shrubbery, pouring concrete, and cutting down trees.
We’re very thankful for electricity and running water here! 🙂
We can eat good, wholesome foods – even at work! – and have fresh
water to boil for hot tea.
And the thing I am most, most thankful for in all this is the ability
to all work together as a family.
That is something very special and precious to me.
It is such a blessing to have a family that loves me, and to know that
we love being together – most of the time! 😉
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for all your blessings!
I will try to post here more often, if the Lord allows!!
